It's Leo! I just found this forum too. I posted my problem re: hot water in the shower. A few guys here had the same problem and had a brilliant method to solve the problem. If you dig through the threads, you'll find it. I plan on breaking out the torches tomorrow to move the pipes around..again.
I'm going to fire up the coal boiler in a few days. Can't wait. My sister just got her oil tank filled @ $2.95 per gallon. Doing a BTU comparison, I figured that the savings by using coal and not oil are 3 to 1.
Have great Thanksgiving!
