In response to Re: Water Recirculating lines Convection

What I actually have is a boiler system that has a Amtrol Hot Water Maker Attached to it. The boiler also runs some wirsbo heat. Our house is a brand new house. I am sure there is no leaks as the pressure in the boiler does not drop. When I put a chart recorder on the boiler to see how often it runs, it makes a full cycle about every 45 minutes to an hour. Telling me that the water maker has dropped ten degrees in that time. Amtrol says if not using water it should only drop 1 degree every hour. My plumber tells me that the water recirc line does not need to be insulated. My Amtrol tank is 80 gals and when I turn it off and watch the water temp it drops about 15 degrees in an hour. That is with no one using hot water.
