    Wish I liked to read. My favorite reading is manuals that get right to the point of topic. Beyond that, be the water and manipulate it at your will. All hydronics fall back on a few concepts based on application. Understand your options to the customers needs and then the fun begins in design. Not just concept but also flow of the system so all lines work together and the build becomes a work of art.

    Understanding what someone with little vision did on a hydronic boiler you are seeing for the first time? Can be a comically painful.

    I have heard good things about Modern Hydronics. Anything by Dan Hollahan is good to go. If you want to really know water then study old single pipe steam boilers. Yes this is steam and if you forget about the smallest atribute of water...you are screwed.

        LMBO!

        One subscription you want is Caleffi's Idronics. Top notch theories for many hot water needs from solar to infloor and baseboard.
