    Flame sight glass causing failure on UFT-80W?

    If anyone else finds this thread and is curious, my combustion numbers have been checked and are within range. My burner (brand new) generates an orange glow through the sight glass on LOW fire... this is because, as I stated, there is a ceramic mesh which glows due to the heat and the flames...

    Flame sight glass causing failure on UFT-80W?

    I know I am resurrecting an old post, but did you ever figure out the solution to this? I just connected a new Westinghouse/HTP combi boiler, and still need to find someone with a combustion analyzer to do the final tuning. I did fire it up, and noticed at low fire it does look orange through...

    Some questions about boiler install

    I have a couple of questions about this diagram I was hoping someone could help me with. For closely spaced tees, I have seen the rules for keeping 8 diameters upstream, and 4 diameters downstream of the straight section. Given that was maintained, would it matter in this layout if the primary...

    Air Separator + Tank in Primary or Secondary loop?

    I am getting more serious about pulling the trigger on my combi boiler conversion. The boiler I am looking at requires a primary/secondary setup and comes with an integrated pump for the primary (Looking at WBRCNG140W) Current boiler has a single loop, so I need to reconfigure things. Looking...

    Push or Pull Circulators

    Hi @TimCee , I'm considering this exact boiler. I'm seeing mixed info online, does yours have a 10:1 turndown ration (min BTU 14k)? How did the install go?

    Choosing a mod-con boiler

    I'm interested, what is your opinion of the Rinnai boilers like the E85SR vs the HTP/Westinghouse you mention. ( Also, how about the Noritz brand?

    Wall vs. Floor Mounted Condensing Boiler

    I was looking at condensing boilers at Menards and am curious about the difference between Wall Mounted and Floor standing versions of what look to be similarly featured and spec'd boilers. In this case, the Westinghouse WBRCNG140F vs WBRCNG140W. Provided space wasn't an issue, is there an...

    Another Cycle Stop Valve Backpressure Question

    I'm considering the installation of a CSV to save my pump when using water for extended periods. I forget the exact brand of pump I have, but I bought it at a big box store a few years ago and I'm pretty sure it's along the lines of a Utilitech 3/4 HP, 10GPM. My pump hangs no more than 80 feet...

    Need advice: Relocating well pressure tank

    Thanks for the info! I was not aware of Cycle Stop Valves and was starting to price out larger tanks. I'm still leaning toward relocating my tank, but it sounds like with the introduction of a CSV I can reuse the tank I have and get a more constant pressure.
