Been burning for 4 days now. Some minor tweaks I'm working through now, which glad I am before it gets really cold. Found I mislanded a t stat ... Sorry to my wife on that one
wow this puppy burns very little coal. 4 days and I barely touched a 5 gal pale. I made it almost 24 hrs without a boiler fire signal from the astat. Friggen thing is awesome. I installed the taco 007 with the internal flow checks on the returns, kinda wish I also installed check valves on the supply. My first zone is staying warm by just having the primary pump running. The primary pump is also a taco 007, I shut this pump off and no longer having issue but now I'm not circulating my primary loop. I have a variable speed pump I might toss in and see how it goes. I'm thinking when my heat demand rises I won't have this issue but for now I don't want a 76 degree bedroom at night. On the boiler ... A big thanks to Scott again, not an issue with the horse just gotta get the wagon to follow correctly now.
