    There's a trap at the low point in the tubing, about two feet long before it turns up. And I added a reverse P-trap at the high point in the vertical rise on the roof. The oil is getting back, I...

    It's worth a shot. That being said, if you need a hard start you're probably going to need a compressor before long. Do your client a favor, recommend a professional, cause you obviously need to be...

    Here's a thought,... what's the voltage when you measure it after the board and before the motor?

    And,... what was the...

    So the longer run times in cold weather is what brings the rads up to temp? You set the flow by delta T(temp rise) through the boiler? Is there a certain starting point with the throttling valve,...

    When it runs in heat mode it's trying to absorb heat from the atmosphere and the pressure in the coil is much lower. Did it used to change speeds or has it always done this? Could be it's supposed to...

    No dielectrics, no.

    I wondered about that draw-off too. The guy who drew up the piping schematic said it was code now. That's what I heard anyway (second-hand). I...

    So no throttling valves? The bypass pipe the same size as the supply and return mains? You'd want to regulate flow somehow, right? I've put bypass loops on boilers before, this one didn't get one...

    No it isn't that simple. The circulators are on the supply, pumping away. A bypass would have to be on the discharge side of the circulators for it to work. It said so in the installation manual.
