    Really Safe Boiler System...Really

    We picked up a new apartment complex today who asked us to come look at some violations with their boilers. My tech sent me this. I've never seen such a thing. I hope it wasn't a contractor who installed this.



    And the boiler was even operational...



    This place needs some professional work.

    I am no boiler guru, but that just looks wrong.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    Looks like a flow switch and not a LWCO. Wiring that right in that position would make boiler no worky. Probably missing the paddle anyway...or it is 3 feet long.

    I like that someone put a 'chart' on the wall telling you when they oiled the circulator. Right next to the dust pan that's never been used.
    Uh...Google it yourself!

    Is that a flow switch?

    I like the 2" going to 1" going to 2" to the circulator and I'm assuming back to 1". Contemplating the velocity on that 1".......................
    Use the biggest hammer you like, pounding a square peg into a round hole does not equal a proper fit.

    I love how they hung that pump! “That there sir, is your resonance frequency generator, makes it super efficient...that’s the ticket, efficient!”

    It didn’t work in the NO contact, so he switched contacts to make it work. No clue at all that’s awesome.
