    The less time the better. Riello burners have a 20 second pre-purge and only a 5 second safety. Riello's probably the most reliable burner on the market.

    I'd carry a 3450 sunstrand and a riello pump if you have any riello's in your area. Anything that runs at 1725 is outdated. I'd still make a run to the parts house for them but I wouldn't stock any.
