How Does a New Boiler Rate as an Investment?
Homeowners often want to know what "payback" or return on investment they'll get from a new boiler. Well, in addition to a warm home and plenty of hot water, what can they expect? And what should they expect?
John Barba gives his personal take on this question in a recent post on John Barba's FloPro blog. How does the "investment" in a new boiler compare to hiding the money in the mattress, putting it in a savings account, or plunking it down in the stock market?
John's answers may surprise you. They're sure to entertain you and make you think. Read "Oil, Wind & Fire" on Barba's FloPro blog now, then let him know what you think.

Question: How to I correctly mount a Taco "00" Series Cartridge Circulator?
Answer: When we speak of mounting, we are referring to the motor or motor shaft part of the pump. This motor part should be in a horizontal position (parallel with the floor), with the capacitor box on top or either side but never under the motor. You can mount the motor in a vertical position (with the end of the motor facing up to the ceiling), as long as you have more than 20 psi in your system.
