    No clamps within 6" of electrical box.

    I'm suprised your required to put a LWCO on those. I haven't installed one on a water boiler, ever.

    In my jurisdiction, Lochinvar/Triangle tube have a built in LWCO that meets requirements.


    I'm having trouble looking at your primary/secondary:
    Are you pumping through the boiler loop, and the pumping from the return of your system look? If so, cool. Just having trouble seeing it.

    I'm pretty sure it's against code to mix abs and PVC. Those most likely have a internal lwc atleast. I never put one in but just a guess.

    lwco's make no sense to me either .. these nti's have overheat protection that shuts them down way before the lwco ever trips .. but it's code ..... so

    the building inspector at one job i did made me put a neutralizer in the condensate line off an air handler 80 feet from the boiler .. i don't even try and argue anymore, i just smile and say 'yes sir'

    the pump at the top pulls off the primary for an indirect tank stashed under some stairs 30 feet away, the return from which is the last thing to go back into the primary before it hits the boiler again .. it's hidden by the boiler

    i did put some more clamps on that bx line before i split .. i gotta get a better camera

    venting isn't mine joe .. code up here in frosty canadia allows mixing products on the intake side as far as i know, but i agree it looks like ass

    Ya I knew it wasn't yours, I know it's against plumbing code for sure, I guess I wouldn't do that so dont know. The LWC always messes up the primary loop, I would like to come off the bottom and straight over. If our inspector is hung over he does some stupid stuff. He isn't aloud in a certin county for embezzlement.
