    The old piping a looks terrible, had to be DIY. New looks really clean, nice job.

    No DIY, local contractor lol. The 011 taco feeds 2 bedroom worth of fin tube with 3/4 pex, boiler short cycles like crazy.

    That's for sure. On a boiler they are supposed to use an oxygen barrier pipe and none of the tube in the house is. Now everything has to be brass or stainless or it will rust out.

    You can use a heat exchanger to separate the iron side from the pex side of system. If its a benefit.

    I have used indirects as the heat exchanger on many of these less then properly done jobs with great results. Although I have mostly done commercial work. Cost didn't matter. Indirect on a 256 tekmar for reset.

    The boiler is a stainless HX so I don't see any real benefit, still would need pumps on the pex side. If it was a cast boiler it might be an idea though.
