    No, you cant use that type of tester. It needs to be a meter type, something that is powered by battery, or other means to get the needle or reading to register.

    Concur.

    Make sure you install a boiler drain before it enters the heater to purge the air. We go shutoff, pump, boiler drain, shutoff, into tank.
