    Laars 750,000 BTU Boiler

    This is an apartment complex. Pulled out an AO Smith 600,000 BTU and replaced it with a Laars 750,000 BTU. 4 120 gallon storage tanks currently installed. Waiting for 2 more to come in and add on. Was at this place 6 years ago. They had a gas leak in the 2” line. At 1am ran new gas line (1” TracPipe” was the biggest I could get at the time. Now there’s a new 2” main line feeding the boiler. Done mind the insulation, it’s just on there temporary. Also ran out of bx for the tank aqua stat. That’s already been fixed.

    Looks good. It may be beneficial in the future to support from the floor rather than the rafters. There's less wobble.

    Pipe was to heavy for it going to the floor.
