So I plugged in the keepfire timer. With the temperature at 65*today and forcast to be 70* tomorrow and stay in the 60's all week, well I needed to put the boiler into 'summer mode'..

At a 4 teeth feed rate thats 12 lbs per hour, that works out to be,,,,, 9.6 lbs per day. That's way below what I was able to run the 520 at.
