  1. Whoa there, guys. Don't jump down my throat here...

    Whoa there, guys. Don't jump down my throat here -- there's no call to be rude.

    I was advised by someone in the thread that I could just try to tighten the fitting. I figured that removing the...
  2. Well, I took the stop off and cleaned the threads...

    Well, I took the stop off and cleaned the threads of the steel nipple and wrapped them with teflon tape. When I looked in the female threaded end of the stop I saw some debris, which I realized was...
  3. Oh, I didn't know if it's OK to just tighten it...

    Oh, I didn't know if it's OK to just tighten it more or if it breaks the seal that the pipe dope is (supposed to be) making.

    And of course the other responders were right that it is galvanized...
  4. Newbie seeks advice on simple-looking leak

    Found a leak under my bathroom sink. I think it is a simple one to fix, but would like some backup as I am a newbie at this.

    There was no moisture above the joint pictured (see below). You can see...
  5. BuffaloBill: wouldn't an explanation of an...

    BuffaloBill: wouldn't an explanation of an "extended Status 6" be that the emitters don't have enough BTU output to drop the water temperature?

    I've been (somewhat blindly) bumping up the curve...
  6. Firstly, thanks for all your help. Second, no,...

    Firstly, thanks for all your help.

    Second, no, I am not sure about the noise going from the gas line and not the venting. I'll certainly look as it is safer to inspect/look at/monkey with (you...
  7. Hey weird, after lowering the reset curve points...

    Hey weird, after lowering the reset curve points all the way, my Solo 60 is making that horn sound too! I wonder if the unit is throttled all the way down and the rate of gas flow is now low enough...
  8. Quick and important question: I just programmed...

    Quick and important question: I just programmed the boiler's outdoor reset curve points to the minimum allowable values which I now realize could have been a really stupid thing to do. Was it? I did...
  9. Badger, what you say makes sense. I think that my...

    Badger, what you say makes sense. I think that my installer did not truly understand how much heat needed to be "dumped" from the system to the living space to adequately lower water temperature so...
  10. I have never understood what high-mass and...

    I have never understood what high-mass and low-mass are in this context. Is it the mass of the hydronic heating water? Is it the mass of the radiators/other heat sinks?

    Is efficiency the result of...
  11. Well, we just had a new green-dot controller...

    Well, we just had a new green-dot controller installed and so far the thud noises are gone as are the E02 lockouts from failure to ignite. If there is one thing that I've learned about mod cons is...
  12. I spoke too soon -- the new controller isn't...

    I spoke too soon -- the new controller isn't igniting properly. That's because they sent us the an "uncorrected" controller (no green dot). A new one just arrived, and will be installed soon. I fear...
  13. Nope. We're still the same tree-hugging...

    Nope. We're still the same tree-hugging eco-freaks :-)

    The installer came by today to check in on the "thud noise" I posted about here:...
  14. New "high efficiency" system operating costs are HIGHER -- help!

    Replaced an aging oversized forced-air gas furnace and gas water heater with a high-efficiency Triangle Tube Prestige Solo 60 boiler, TT Smart indirect water heater and runtal radiators. We were...
  15. Tray, are you responding to my post about the...

    Tray, are you responding to my post about the thud noise, or are you replying to Buffalobillpatrick's issue?

    Have you read the manual yet? Check the temperature setting on the boiler (as instructed by the manual).
  17. Buffalobill, Did you have the controller...

    Buffalobill,

    Did you have the controller replaced as I have? That eliminated the failure to ignite issue resulting in hard lockout E02 code requiring reset.

    TT is aware of the issue, sent out a...
  18. Triangle Tube Prestige Boiler Problems, Solutions & Question

    We had a Prestige Solo 60 boiler installed with a new hydronic system. It seemed to be working OK, but when the weather got cold, it would display an error (I think error code 02 or 03) which meant...

    The existing chimney serves nothing now that the furnace has been replaced by a boiler located in another part of the house.

    Yes there is insulation behind the knee wall, but that is not where we...

    Well, the first phase of this remodel is done -- removing the stupid furnace from the hallway and replacing it and the water heater with a high-efficiency gas boiler and radiators. A few hiccups...

    What kind of wall construction is this?

    I've heard of sheetrock, and I've heard of lath-and-plaster, but I'm not familiar with what appears to be a thin sheetrock covered by a metal lathe and _then_ plaster, but it is in my 1937 house. It...

    The lake level varies a bit, so I don't know how practical this is. Also the lake freezes in winter, if that matters (for servicing it).

    I see how a submersible pump gets around needing a pump...

    Pump Location @ Lake Cabin

    Our cabin, only used during summer, uses water from the lake it is on. There is an external pump house near the lake. The pump has a shortish run from the lake (6' rise) and then pushes water uphill...

    Interesting stuff Dana. Oddly, since we are a couple who use water efficiently the payback might be even slower. I wonder how well PowerPipe maintains its effectiveness as slimy stuff grows on the...
