I was curious about what you meant by dog box entry since I have never heard that term. Could you describe it further, the power door with access panel was my attempt at secluding the auger for service.
Thanks for your other comments gaw, take it easy on Yanche
, he is all for the new and smart ways of doing things.
I still have to investigate the part number of the aquastat that came with the boiler to see how it functions. Also the bypass with a balancing valve are not in the current piping schematic but worthy of consideration. The installation where I removed the boileer had that set up, and since I do not understand exactly how it works I had not drawn it in yet.
