    Here, a boiler can't be set on a garage floor. Must be on a stand.

    You could build a 18" tall wall around it in cinder blocks and meet code perhaps b-vent connector to meet clearances and check on the back if the boiler clearances as well

    Boiler not secure, secondary pan needed, also stand and barrier pole in order to pass in Cali. Would have recomended natural gas or lp, at least here it's cheeper to run. Not a plumber but I know that much.

    Why would you need or want a secondary pan in a garage? Only requirded here when installed in the occupied area. By code here the flame of the appliance must be 36" above the floor when installed in a garage.
    If you really know how it works, you have an execellent chance of fixin' er up!

    Tomorrow is promised to no one...

    Hey GJ-HVAC/R,
    I might be wrong (excuse me if I am) but I would like to question how the Temp. and pressure valve is installed. But I was always taught that the thermal element of the T&P valve should be inside of the water heater and that it is improper to install it in a stubbed out section of pipe.
