"Looks good! Can't see the reliefe valve, but I assume it's all proper. Is that monster B&G needed? We used to replace them with 007's because the B&G's used so much electricity."

So far there is no ash in the ash pan it hardly used any coal ,I haven't measured the amount yet but it seems to be burning it very thoroughly . I had it turned off for about 3hrs to see how long it can maintain a fire .I could see red coals soon as I powered it back up . It didnt run very long either getting back to 140* . So my personal experience these boilers are garbage .If you have one you should sell it to me ,for scrap value .

holy smokes, that's awesome!! 24 hours and still a fire? And you're using hot water?
If there is no ash in the pail, then to me that means no ash!
Unless the AA design is different where a lot of ash sits in the pot before it makes its way to the pail?
Freddy must be smiling reading all this!

The wife would have beat me if she ran out while in the shower ,it wasn't worth the risk . Also the burn pan does hold a lot of the ash before it makes it to the pail ,it seems like it burned the coal up very completely looking at what is there . Dave
