Re: Pump failure

Is the impeller actually bronze or is it just the cartridge for a bronze pump that you were looking at?
7 years isn't bad but it it was mine, I would look into changing to a Grundfos. Overall I have had much better luck with them than Taco.

Re: 62' of Rehau Insulpex 1" ID (32mm) $550

I have a 62' piece of 1" ID insulpex. This is the exact same size and foam type as Logstor. Looking to get $550 for the 62' piece. It is just the last section of a roll.

Re: Titanium shell & tube heat exchanger

Re: Which is better

I hadn't seen this earlier. I see it shows you have a HeatMaster C250. Did you get that since the original post? That is a good choice.

Re: New setup help with install

Yes, that is how I would do it. The reason I would use a 30 plate for this instead of a 20 plate is because of the length and size of pipe you are using. If you used a 20 plate it would be the bottleneck in the loop. The expansion tank is usually before the pump(s). You will want an air separator to...

Re: New setup help with install

The simplest way is to just put the DHW plate in series but you can not use a 10 plate if you do that. Like I mentioned above, either a 30 plate (~5x12") or don't put it in series.

Re: New setup help with install

Unless the house is a ways higher than the OWB, I would consider skipping the 70 plate and just run the same water in everything. I know others on the other site would not agree with that though.
