Does the same thing apply to hydronic distribution pipes? You doing such a good job, I'd hate to see corrsion and leaks pop up down the road at these dissimilar metal connections.
That was something I never thought of. I'll have to keep an eye on that. I think I just grabbed whatever was in the bin in front of me @ Home Depot (as long as it wasn't plastic
) without really thinking about it. Thanks for the heads-up!

Does anyone know if there would be issues adding this type of coil to a DVC-500?
Should be no different than in a hand-fired, except that you may not have as much space as I do, due to the stoker assembly being in there. In the (VERY DISTANT!
) future, I'd like to go with a stoker boiler in parallel with my oil furnace.
But I've had enough with plumbing to last me a few years!
