Packard bill thanks for the ideas. Yes my circulator is a Tacco 007. I will get more into the flow and the ideas that you have after like you said let’s get a clean, deep, full burning fire bed.
JB Tonight I did as Coalkirk said and pushed down on the bed. Need to come up with a good tool to do this. Would be neat if some people could post some pictures of there weapons
. Right now all seems to be well
. I will try this again in the morning and see what happens. The reason that I went to the boiler was because my stoker is a Harman Magnum and it is in our family room. We have not heated the house during the winter with the baseboards since the first year that we lived here (20 yrs). Have been saying for a number of years that I would love to be able to use the baseboard hot water. It is much better, the whole house is now the same temp and I am heating the hot water. Also now we don’t have all the fans running to move the air around. Much quieter too. Now if I can keep this thing going. Also you have mentioned the bypass valves on your hot water tank. I have some question on this but not at this time.
EFO141 very good on your friend’s setup and coal usage. I have some questions about the fan install but not at this time. My head is in info overload and very tired.
Coalkirk as stated above I tried your process and at least tonight it seemed to work. Over the next few days I will try to get some pictures. I am burning nut coal.
