DHW Coil Placement in Pocono

DHW Coil Placement in Pocono

PostBy: njbill On: Sat Sep 26, 2009 8:50 am

Quick question - saw a post in the archive that a DHW coil in a Leisure Line Pocono should be 6-8" above the fire.

Does anyone know at what height Jerry (LL) drills the coil holes at the factory? That will ease my guessing. THanks.

Yes, 6" to 8" is fine.

Thanks.

Jerry, is that 6-8 above the typical flame or the coal bed? Would you expect similiar effectiveness if it was plumbed vertically like in TdiDave's pics above?
