  1. Converting steam boiler system to hydronic boiler system...can pipes be reused?

    My church is considering converting its 60-year-old steam boiler to a staged hydronic boiler system. One contractor said he could reuse nearly all of the pipes that were used to heat the Sanctuary. Three other contractors would put in all new pipes. The cost more than doubles with all new pipes. Could the old pipes be reused? What factors should be considered? Thanks for your help!

  4. Remove Space Heater in basement-and cap off gas line

    Hello everyone, I am the wife of a stubborn man. I am wondering if someone would let me know the best way to remove a gas - hard lined basement space heater and cap it off. I want to hire someone to do it since my husband is a truck driver, not a plumber. I have called to get some quotes and it is going to run at least $150. The heater is only about 3ft high x2W x2L. Husband states it should only cost 50 at the most to get a cap, saw and mud???
