That’s sort of how I looked at it but I’m a rookie installer/plumber diy’er and I wanted to bubble up any issues/concerns and vent thru those concerns...... all puns are intended
I’m going to follow the leads of kstone and Yanche and go the standard practice and hang the ET vertical. I like Yanche’s ET setup hanging from well supported hangers with his manifold ET expansion. I have some lengths of unistrut and ½” all thread just need to pick up the hanger clamps.
I have a question for Yanche on your ET manifold setup; what is you approx pipe lenght from the ET manifold input to your boiler/primary loop? Trying to get a feel for how far away I can mount the ET. Is that distance a concern? I'm thinking 4' to 5' for my install but I could place closer if needed.....In my head I think this would not be an install issue but.....
To answer AA130FIREMAN I will be pumping away from the ET......into the boiler returns. My WL110K install post LL110K in the basement.
I appreciate any and all comments thank you for the responses..........Dick
