It is in the 2nd to last picture with a copper pipe going into a plastic jar. 30 psi set point. The boiler was rated working pressure of 125 and I tested it to 50 something with domestic water pressure. Boiler explosions are no fun. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Sultana

The indirect has a high temp/ pressure relief valve, 150 psi set point or 210 degrees. I still need to pipe that within 6 inches of the floor. I'll get there........someday. :roll:

It is far more likely to plow off due to hi temp (210 degrees) than hi pressure. 150 psi set point is an industry standard for domestic hot water. There is no way the pressure could get to that point with my lame centrifical well pump.

I got the tempering valve hooked up yesterday. My wife is complaining the water isn't hot enough at the kitchen sink. The temp is right for the shower and bathroom. I might have to run untempered water to the kitchen to keep her happy. The temperature of the water pulses with the well pump cycles in the shower. warm hot warm hot. It's not uncomfortable but just does't seem right. Maybe the valve needs to break in or I might have to run a separate water feed to the tempering valve instead of sharing with the indirect. It's still a work in progress.

I see the blowoff on the top of the tank, don't you need it on the top of

the boiler in the tee there?

The boiler blowoff is much lower, like 60-80 psi, not 150 psi.

I do believe you are right about the improper placement of the boiler relief valve. I will change it. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Hi Dennis, that is a nice looking install. How well does the Yukon burn coal?

Hi all, This may not be the right topic here but I'm looking for help with my new bucket-a-day heater. I'm new to burning coal but I'm having alot of trouble lighting my nut anthracite. I started with what I thought was a good hot pine fire with alot of coals and added two or three inches of coal and it was like I put wet wood on the fire, went out instantly. I even tried putting a hair dryer under the fire for added air and it made no differance? Any help from the group would be appreciated.

thanks in advance

Hi Gary. I would recommend starting a new thread under the "Hand Fired Coal Stoves" area. I am sure your question will get quite a bit of attention there.
Good luck!
