    Reply to domestic water

    I heat my domestic water seperately in another tank. I was looking at the features of some of these new boilers that will do that as well. But will there be enough volume? Currently we use a 40 gal water heater.

    Boilers like the WM Ultra require the addition of an indirect to use them to make hot water.

    They can provide more hot water then a standard gas water heater.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    He just never told Mark he made them take cold showers.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
