      absolutely. All indirects are that way. Your boiler only runs at about 15 pis. City water where i live is about 80 to 120 psi. so if they weren't a heat exhanger it would be blowing off the relif valve all day long. They are intended for anti freeze being run through them on both the boiler and the solar side.

            Those babies look like they're 75 gallon units. Anything larger than 65 gallons requires 3 straps. And, where's the insulation on the hot and return lines. Clean work, though! Why two bibs on the return past the check? Why two gauges on return before the check? T & P dumped on the floor?? I don't think Dan would like that.

                Their 80gal. and actually mr shea did inspect this and called me on the straps i told him i would add two more straps (not shown in pic) as for the bibs ones a low point drain and the vertical bibs with the ball valve in between is the "block and purge" for filling the collector with glycol. The valve is closed and the bibs are opened you fill from the top bib glycol goes up the collector and back through to coil in the tank then purged from the bottom one. The gauge is a temp and pressure and the other gauge is being used as a plug during test lol thats where the expansion tank will sit.. as for the domestic return nothing had been insulated yet every tube in that room was insulated period even the cold. the floor is pitched and he didn't say a damn word about the t&ps, Thanks for keeping me in check scott

                      it must be a big house or a commercial building. what is that four taco boxes? controller? why four?

                      the initial investment must be close to 10 thousand.

                          ok stupid question here you all keep mentioning the straps on water heaters. Is that just for California or something? I ask because the inspector here in Hudson NY has never mentioned any such thing.
