    Looks good. Partner's I+O manual calls for 1" piping and IF a zone valve is to be used, a CAREFULLY selected one with proper Cv, etc. I would forget the zone valve engineering and put in a three...

    Piping should be 1" from boiler to indirect. A...

    What a waste of fuel, with the boiler set up to maintain temp like it had a coil inside. Your oil company is loving it though.

    Does the indirect have a dedicated circulator? Is it prioritized?

    IF you have an indirect, IF the boiler and the indirect are sized properly and IF things are wired properly, the boiler should not be running off a low limit at all. When the indirect calls, it...

    Long post. Here's my thoughts..point 1: If you are looking at a three pass boiler, you are not looking at an expensive-to-run boiler with a hot water coil. I haven't installed a coil boiler in 10...

    Hmm. Gravity systems were out by '55. So it's possible it is a converted steam job.

    I'm not familiar with Knights reset curve adjustments, but if you can shift it to accomodate the CI rad emmitters that would be good. Resets work linearly, as far as I know there is no bang on below...

    You can run some Rohmar 9100 through it. Is it a 100% water system or glycol'd?

    Keep in mind that the black boiler water is the good stuff. Dead, de-oxygenated gold.

    Your first mistake was to not replace the whole thing. Fooling around with the burner nozzle and pump pressures isn't going to change anything. It SEEMS like it is, but the readings are happenstance....

    If it's the supply plenum, bad. If it's the return plenum, only if they had no choice.

    The only homes that I would give a pass to with returns in the baths would be Andie McDowall's and Julianne Moore's. There is no possible way those women can emit any foul odors.

    Count on more joints (read potential leak points) with stick copper. I only use it for aesthetics on that rare job where the lineset has to run outside exposed horizontal for many many feet.

    I have been seeing the utilities use pex type gas piping for burial in the street/branch runs.

    I've even done burial with plastic for grills and generator installation.

    You realize that electronics make the spark and the gas valve work on modern atomospheric boilers?
