WARNING
If you do not follow these instructions exactly,
a fire or explosion may result causing property
damage or personal injury.
F. Provide combustion and ventilation air in accordance
with applicable provisions of local building codes,
or: USA - National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI
Z223.1, Air for Combustion and Ventilation;
Canada - Natural Gas or Propane Installation Code,
CAN/CSA-B149.1.
DANGER
Do not install boiler where gasoline or other
flammable vapors or liquids, or sources of
hydrocarbons (i.e. bleaches, cleaners, chemicals,
sprays, paint removers, fabric softeners, etc.) are
used or stored.
NOTICE
Due to the low water content of the boiler, missizing of the boiler with regard to the heating
system load will result in excessive boiler cycling
and accelerated component failure. Burnham
DOES NOT warrant failures caused by mis-sized
boiler applications. DO NOT oversize the boiler to
the system. Modular boiler installations greatly
reduce the likelihood of boiler oversizing.
A. Installation must conform to the requirements of the
authority having jurisdiction. In the absence of such
requirements, installation must conform to the National
Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1, and/or CAN/
CSA B149.1 Installation Codes.
B. Appliance is design certified for installation on
combustible flooring. Do not install boiler on
carpeting.
C. Provide clearance between boiler jacket and
combustible material in accordance with local fire
ordinance. Refer to Figure 1 for minimum listed
clearance from combustible material. Recommended
service clearance is 24 inches from left side, right
side and front. Service clearances may be reduced to
minimum clearances to combustible materials.
D. Install on level floor. For basement installation provide
solid base such as concrete, if floor is not level or if
water may be encountered on floor around boiler. Floor
must be able to support weight of boiler, water and all
additional system components.
E. Protect gas ignition system components from water
(dripping, spraying, rain, etc.) during boiler operation
and service (circulator replacement, condensate trap,
control replacement, etc.).
WARNING
Adequate combustion and ventilation air must
be provided to assure proper combustion.
The following guideline is based on the National Fuel Gas
Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1.
1. Determine volume of space (boiler room). Rooms
communicating directly with space (through
openings not furnished with doors) are considered
part of space.
Volume [ft³] = Length [ft] x Width [ft] x Height [ft]
2. Determine Total Input of all appliances in space.
Round result to nearest 1,000 Btu per hour (Btuh).
3. Determine type of space. Divide Volume by Total
Input.
a. If result is greater than or equal to 50 ft³ per
1,000 Btuh, space is considered an unconfined
space.
b. If result is less than 50 ft³ per 1,000 Btuh, space
is considered a confined space.
4. Determine building type. A building of unusually
tight construction has the following characteristics:
a. Walls and ceiling exposed to outside atmosphere
have a continuous water vapor retarder with a
rating of 1 perm or less with openings gasketed
and sealed, and;
b. Weather-stripping has been added on openable
windows and doors, and;
c. Caulking or sealants applied in joints around
window and door frames, between sill plates and
floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall
panels, at plumbing and electrical penetrations,
and at other openings.
5. For boiler located in an unconfined space in a
building of other than unusually tight construction,
adequate combustion and ventilation air is normally
provided by fresh air infiltration through cracks
around windows and doors.
6. For boiler located within unconfined space in
building of unusually tight construction or within
confined space, provide outdoor air through two
permanent openings which communicate directly or
by duct with the outdoors or spaces (crawl or attic)
freely communicating with the outdoors. Locate one
opening within twelve (12) inches of top of space.
Locate remaining opening within twelve (12) inches
of bottom of space. Minimum dimension of air
opening is three (3) inches. Size each opening per
following:
space(s) of sufficient volume such that combined
volume of all spaces meet criteria for unconfined
space. Size each opening for minimum free area
of one (1) square inch per 1,000 Btu per hour
input of all equipment in spaces, but not less than
100 square inches.
7. Combustion Air/Ventilation Duct Louvers and
Grilles. Equip outside openings with louvers to
prevent entrance of rain and snow, and screens to
prevent entrance of insects and rodents. Louvers and
grilles must be fixed in open position or interlocked
with equipment to open automatically before burner
operation. Screens must not be smaller than ¼ inch
mesh.
a. Direct communication with outdoors. Minimum
free area of one (1) square inch per 4,000 Btu per
hour input of all equipment in space.
b. Vertical ducts. Minimum free area of one (1)
square inch per 4,000 Btu per hour input of all
equipment in space. Duct cross-sectional area
shall be same as opening free area.
c. Horizontal ducts. Minimum free area of one (1)
square inch per 2,000 Btu per hour input of all
equipment in space. Duct cross-sectional area
shall be same as opening free area.
Alternate method for boiler located within
confined space. Use indoor air if two permanent
openings communicate directly with additional
Consider the blocking effect of louvers, grilles and
screens when calculating the opening size to provide
the required free area. If free area of louver or grille
is not known, assume wood louvers have 20-25
percent free area and metal louvers and grilles have
60-75 percent free area.
CAUTION
Avoid operating this boiler in an environment where saw dust, loose insulation fibers, dry wall dust, etc.
are present. If boiler is operated under these conditions, the burner interior and ports must be cleaned and
inspected daily to insure proper operation.
II. Unpack Boiler
CAUTION
WARNING
Do not drop boiler. Do not bump boiler jacket
against floor.
Installation of this boiler should be undertaken
only by trained and skilled personnel from a
qualified service agency.
A. Move boiler to approximate installed position.
B. Remove all crate fasteners.
C. Lift and remove outside container. Save two of the
wooden slats from the container sleeve for use in Steps
E and F.
D. Remove all boiler hold-down fasteners.
E. Tilt the boiler to its front side or back side and slide a
wooden slat under the three raised feet.
F. Tilt the boiler in the opposite direction and slide
another wooden slat under the three raised feet.
G. Slide the boiler left or right off the skid using the two

A. Vent Guidelines Due to Removal of an Existing
Boiler
For installations not involving the replacement of an
existing boiler, proceed to Step B.
When an existing boiler is removed from a common
venting system, the common venting system is likely
to be too large for proper venting of the remaining
appliances. At the time of removal of an existing
boiler, the following steps shall be followed with each
appliance remaining connected to the common venting
system placed in operation, while the other appliances
remaining connected to the common venting system are
not in operation:
1. Seal any unused openings in the common venting
system.
2. Visually inspect the venting system for proper
size and horizontal pitch and determine there is no
blockage or restriction, leakage, corrosion, and other
deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.
3. Insofar as is practical, close all building doors and
windows and all doors between the space in which
the appliances remaining connected to the common
venting system are located and other spaces of the
building. Turn on clothes dryers and any appliance
not connected to the common venting system.
Turn on any exhaust fans, such as range-hoods and
bathroom exhausts, so they will operate at maxi­mum
speed. Do not operate a summer exhaust fan. Close
fireplace dampers.
4. Place in operation the appliance being inspected.
Follow the Lighting (or Operating) Instructions.
Adjust thermo­stat so appliance will operate
continuously.
5. Test for spillage at the draft hood relief opening
after five (5) minutes of main burner operation. Use
the flame of a match or candle, or smoke from a
cigarette, cigar or pipe.
6. After it has been determined that each appliance
remain­ing connected to the common venting system
properly vents when tested as outlined above, return
doors, win­dows, exhaust fans, fireplace dampers and
any other gas burning appliance to their previous
conditions of use.
7. Any improper operation of the common venting
system should be corrected so the installation
conforms with the National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA
54/ANSI Z223.1. When resizing any portion of the
common venting system, the common venting
system should be resized to approach the minimum
size as determined using the appropriate tables in
Part II in the National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/
ANSI Z223.1.
10
B. General Guidelines
1. Vent system installation must be in accordance
with National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI
Z221.3 or applicable provisions of local building
codes. Contact local building or fire officials about
restrictions and installation inspection in your area.
2. Refer to the appropriate drawings in this section of
this manual to determine the proper configuration of
venting system. See Table 1.
3. This appliance requires a Special Gas Vent. The
product is designed to use Burnham supplied AL29-4C®
Stainless Steel vent system components. The following
manufacturers offer similar AL 29-4C® components
and are approved for use with this product. Heat-Fab
Inc. - Saf-T-Vent (800-772-0739); Flex-L International
Inc. - Star-34 (800-561-1980); Z-Flex U. S., Inc.
- Z-Vent (800-654-5600); and Protech Systems, Inc.FasNSeal™ (800-766-3473) or equivalent. The use
of these alternate manufacturer’s venting systems will
require adapters to connect to the Burnham supplied
vent connector and vent terminal. These adapters are
not supplied with this unit and should be obtained from
the supplier of the alternate manufacturer’s venting
system. See Table 3 for complete list of Burnham
Vent System Components.
4. Horizontal vent pipe must maintain a minimum ¼
inch per foot slope away from boiler.
5. Use noncombustible ¾ inch pipe strap to support
horizontal runs and maintain vent location and
slope while preventing sags in pipe. Do not restrict
thermal expansion or movement of vent system.
Maximum support spacing is five (5) feet. Do not
penetrate any part of the vent system with fasteners.
6. Vent length restrictions are based on equivalent
length of vent pipe (total length of straight pipe
plus equivalent length of fittings). Maximum
vent lengths are listed in Table 4. Do not exceed
maximum vent lengths. Table 3 lists equivalent
lengths for fittings. Do not include vent terminals in
equivalent feet calculations.
7. Provide and maintain vent pipe minimum clearances
to combustible materials. Vent pipe minimum
clearance to combustible material is four (4) inches
when vent is installed in a fully enclosed (chase)
application or three (3) inches when vent is installed
with at least one side open, similar to a joist bay
application. Use double wall thimble [Burnham
Part No. 8116115 (3”), 100185-01 (4”)] when
penetrating a combustible wall.
8. Do not install venting system components on
the exterior of the building except as specifically
required by these instructions. The vent termination
location is restricted as follows:
a. Minimum twelve (12) inches above grade plus
normally expected snow accumulation level, or
seven (7) feet above grade if located adjacent
to public walkway. Do not install over public
walkway where local experience indicates
appliance flue gas vapor or condensate creates a
nuisance or hazard.
b. Minimum three (3) feet above any forced air
inlet located within ten (10) feet.
c. Minimum four (4) feet below, four (4) feet
horizontally from, or four (4) feet above any
door, window, or gravity air inlet.
d. Minimum four (4) feet horizontally from electric
meters, gas meters, regulators, and relief valves.
This distance may be reduced if equipment is
protected from damage due to condensation or
vapor by enclosure, overhangs, etc.
e. Minimum twelve (12) inches from overhang or
corner of building.
9. Enclose vent passing through occupied or
unoccupied spaces above the boiler with material
having a fire resistance rating of at least equal to the
rating of the adjoining floor or ceiling. Maintain
minimum clearances to combustible materials. See
Figure 1.
Note: For one or two family dwellings, fire
resistance rating requirement may not need to be
met, but is recommended.
10. Plan venting system to avoid possible contact with
plumbing or electrical wires. Start at vent connector
on top of boiler and work towards vent terminal.
11. Once a vent pipe manufacturer and system is chosen
never mix and match vent systems.
12. If a non-standard length pipe is required:
Gasketed Vent System: The use of the adjustable
length pipe (P/N 8116319U) is recommended to
complete a non-standard pipe length. This pipe
requires a minimum installed length of 12¾ inch
and can adjust across a 7 inch gap up to a maximum
of 19¾ inch long. (Note for the adjustable pipe
the installed length should be measured from the
centerline of the bead on the male end of the first
pipe to the end of the female pipe excluding the
locking band of the second pipe with a single
gasket.) Only in the event the adjustable length pipe
is not sufficient a standard length pipe may be cut
using the procedure outlined below for the GasketLess Vent System.
WARNING
Never exceed maximum installed length of 19¾
inches for adjustable length pipe.
Risk of flue gas leakage is possible.
NOTICE
Cut must be square with pipe and filed or
sanded smooth before joining. Carefully ensure
roundness of cut pipe by hand with gloves before
installing. Seal joint with RTV specified in this
manual.
C. Install Vent Pipe, Burnham Gasketed Vent System.
1. Procedure for Joining Burnham Gasketed Vent Pipe
and Fittings. See Figure 3.
a. Wipe the male end of each joint using an alcohol
pad to remove any dirt and grease.
b. Align weld seams in pipes and use a slight
twisting motion to FULLY insert male end into
female end of joint. Ensure bead in male end
of pipe is below locking band and rest against
the end of the female pipe. Verify the factoryinstalled gasket is not dislodged or cut.

IV. Water Piping and Trim
WARNING
Failure to properly pipe boiler may result in improper operation and damage to boiler or structure.
Oxygen contamination of boiler water will cause corrosion of iron and steel boiler components, and
can lead to boiler failure. Burnham’s Standard Warranty does not cover problems caused by oxygen
contamination of boiler water or scale (lime) build-up caused by frequent addition of water.
A. Design and install boiler and system piping to
prevent oxygen contamination of boiler water and
frequent water additions.
1. There are many possible causes of oxygen
contamination such as:
a. Addition of excessive make-up water as a result
of system leaks.
b. Absorption through open tanks and fittings.
c. Oxygen permeable materials in the distribution
system.
2. In order to insure long product life, oxygen sources
must be eliminated. This can be accomplished by
taking the following measures:
a. Repairing system leaks to eliminate the need for
addition of make-up water.
b. Eliminating open tanks from the system.
c. Eliminating and/or repairing fittings which allow
oxygen absorption.
d. Use of non-permeable materials in the
distribution system.
e. Isolating the boiler from the system water by
installing a heat exchanger.
f. Use properly designed and operating air
elimination devices in water piping.
Where
The universal location for a LWCO on both gas and oil
hot water boilers is above the boiler, in either the supply
or return piping. The minimum safe water level of a
water boiler is at the uppermost top of the boiler; that is,
it must be full of water to operate safely.
What Kind
The PVG boiler is designed to accept the wiring of the
Safgard Model 1100-H4 LWCO (P/N 100592-01). This
is a probe type LWCO. The factory wiring is designed
to allow simple “Plug-in” installation of the wiring.
How to Pipe
A “tee” is commonly used to connect the probe LWCO
to the supply or return piping, as shown below.
B. Low Water Cut Off (LWCO) on Hot Water Boilers
(Optional)
WARNING
DO NOT ATTEMPT to cut factory wires to
install an aftermarket Low Water Cut Off
(LWCO). Only use connections specifically
identified for Low Water Cut Off.
LWCO Location
Select the appropriate size tee using the LWCO
manufacturer’s instructions. Often, the branch
connection must have a minimum diameter to prevent
bridging between the probe and the tee. Also, the run
of the tee must have a minimum diameter to prevent
the end of the probe from touching or being located too
close to the inside wall of the run of the tee.
Ideally, manual shutoff valves should be located
above the LWCO and the boiler to allow for servicing.
This will allow probe removal for inspection without
draining the heating system. Many probe LWCO
manufacturers recommend an annual inspection of the
probe.
In all cases, follow the Low Water Cut Off
(LWCO) manufacturer’s instructions.
20
When
A low water cutoff is required to protect a hot water
boiler when any connected heat distributor (radiation)
is installed below the top of the hot water boiler (i.e.
baseboard on the same floor level as the boiler). In
addition, some jurisdictions require the use of a LWCO
with a hot water boiler.
How to Wire
Ensure power is turned off to boiler.
Locate the LWCO jumper wire in the factory wiring
harness. Remove the jumper wire and install
the LWCO wiring from LWCO Model 1100-H4
(P/N 100592-01) into the plug of the PVG factory
wiring.
How to Test
Shut off fuel supply. Lower water level until water
level is BELOW the LWCO. Generate a boiler demand
by turning up thermostat. Boiler should not attempt to
operate. Increase the water level by filling the system.
The boiler should attempt to operate once the water
level is above the LWCO.
NOTICE
Ensure the location of the LWCO in the piping will
allow for connection of the LWCO wiring harness
to the factory wiring of the PVG.
C. Connect system supply and return piping to
boiler. See Figures 11 and 12. Maintain minimum ½
inch clearance from hot water piping to combustible
materials.
WARNING
Pressure relief valve discharge piping must be
piped such that the potential of severe burns
is eliminated. DO NOT pipe in any area where
freezing could occur. DO NOT install any shut-off
valves, plugs or caps. Consult Local Codes for
proper discharge piping arrangement.
F. Space heating and domestic water heating with
Alliance™ water heater. Install Alliance water heater as
a separate heating zone. Refer to Alliance Installation,
Operating and Service Instructions for additional
information.
G. If boiler is used in connection with refrigeration
systems, boiler must be installed with chilled medium
piped in parallel with the heating boiler using
appropriate valves to prevent chilled medium from
entering boiler, see Figure 10.
H. If boiler is connected to heating coils located in
air handling units where they may be exposed to
refrigerated air, boiler piping must be equipped with
flow control valves to prevent gravity circulation of
boiler water during operation of cooling system.
NOTICE
Burnham recommends sizing the system
circulator to supply sufficient flow (GPM) to allow a
20°F temperature differential in the system. When
sizing the system circulator, the pressure drop of
all radiators, baseboard and radiant tubing and all
connecting piping must be considered.
D. Install circulator with flanges, gaskets and bolts
provided. Circulator harness allows circulator to be
mounted on supply or return. Connect harness to
circulator and secure any excess conduit.
E. Install supply manifold, pressure/temperature gauge
and pressure relief valve.
See Figure 10A. Pressure Relief Valve must be installed
with spindle in vertical position. Installation of the
relief valve must comply with the ASME Boiler and
Pressure Vessel Code, Section IV.
Figure 10: Recommended Piping for Combination
Heating & Cooling (Refrigeration) System
I. Use a boiler bypass if the boiler is to be operated
in a system which has a large volume or excessive
radiation where low boiler water temperatures may be
encountered (i.e. converted gravity circulation system,
etc.).
21
Figure 10A: Supply Water Manifold Piping
22
Install pipe tee between circulator and boiler return
along with second tee in supply piping as shown in
Figure 11 or 12. Bypass should be same size as the
supply and return lines with valves located in bypass
and supply outlet as illustrated in Figure 11 or 12 in
order to regulate water flow to maintain higher boiler
water temperatures.
After the boiler is operational (reference Section VIII.
System Start-Up) set by-pass and boiler supply valves
to half throttle position to start. Operate boiler until
system water temperature reaches normal operating
range.
Adjust valves to provide 180° to 200°F supply water
temperature. Opening the boiler supply valve will raise
system temperature, while opening the by-pass valve
will lower system supply temperature.
J. After the boiler and system have been cleaned and
flushed, and before refilling the entire system add
appropriate water treatment chemicals, if necessary, to
bring the pH between 7 and 11.
K. If it is required to perform a long term pressure
test of the hydronic system, the boiler should first be
isolated to avoid a pressure loss due to the escape of air
trapped in the boiler.
To perform a long term pressure test including the
boiler, ALL trapped air must first be removed from the
boiler.
A loss of pressure during such a test, with no visible
water leakage, is an indication that the boiler contained
trapped air.

Electrical Code, NFPA 70.
C. Pressure test. The boiler and its gas connection must
be leak tested before placing boiler in operation.
1. Protect boiler gas control valve. For all testing over
½ psig, boiler and its individual shutoff valve must
be disconnected from gas supply piping. For testing
at ½ psig or less, isolate boiler from gas supply
piping by closing boiler’s individual manual shutoff
valve.
2. Locate leaks using approved combustible gas
detector, soap and water, or similar nonflammable
solution.
DANGER
Do not use matches, candles, open flames or
other ignition source to check for leaks.
27
VI. Electrical
DANGER
Positively assure all electrical connections are unpowered before attempting installation or service of
electrical components or connections of the boiler or building. Lock out all electrical boxes with padlock
once power is turned off.
WARNING
Failure to properly wire electrical connections to the boiler may result in serious physical harm.
Electrical power may be from more than one source. Make sure all power is off before attempting any
electrical work.
Each boiler must be protected with a properly sized over-current device.
Never jump out or make inoperative any safety or operating controls.
The wiring diagrams contained in this manual are for reference purposes only. Each boiler is shipped with
a wiring diagram attached to the front door. Refer to this diagram and the wiring diagram of any controls
used with the boiler. Read, understand and follow all wiring instructions supplied with the controls.
A. General. Install wiring and electrically ground boiler
in accordance with authority having jurisdiction or, in
the absence of such requirements, follow the National
Electrical Code, NFPA 70, and/or CSA C22.1 Electrical
Code.
B. A separate electrical circuit must be run from
the main electrical service with an over-current
device/disconnect in the circuit. A service switch is
recommended and may be required by some local
jurisdictions. Install the service switch in the line
voltage “Hot” leg of the power supply. Locate the
service switch such that the boiler can be shut-off
without exposing personnel to danger in the event of
an emergency. Connect the main power supply and
ground to the three (3) boiler wires (black, white and
green) located in the junction box at the inside top of
the boiler jacket. If a low water cutoff is to be used,
connect the low water cutoff so that all 120V power
to boiler is interrupted if the low water cutoff’s switch
opens.
C. Refer to Figures 14 and 15 for details on the internal
boiler wiring.
NOTICE
This boiler is equipped with a high water temperature limit located inside the internal wiring of the boiler.
This limit provides boiler shutdown in the event the boiler water temperature exceeds the set point of the
limit control. Certain Local Codes require an additional water temperature limit. In addition, certain types
of systems may operate at temperatures below the minimum set point of the limit contained in the boiler.
If this occurs, install an additional water temperature limit (Honeywell L4006 Aquastat) located in the system
piping as shown in the Water Piping and Trim Section of this manual. Wire as indicated in the Electrical
Section of this manual.
NOTICE
All wire, wire nuts, controls etc. are installer supplied unless otherwise noted.

Connect the thermostat of each zone and the circulator for that zone to R8888 panel. If an Alliance™ indirect water
heater is used, connect the Alliance™ thermostat and circulator to the Zone 1 terminals of the R8888.
Set the thermostat heat anticipator to 0.12 amps.
NOTICE
The Honeywell R8888 Control is available in a three (3) zone Model (R8888A) and a four (4) zone Model
(R8888B). Up to four (4) R8888’s may be used together to provide control for up to twelve (12) individual
zones. Only one (1) zone, the first zone of the main control, will provide priority circulation. If more than
four (4) zones are required, connect additional R8888’s by wiring the A, B, and C terminals of each control
together. Each R8888 requires a 120 volt power supply. If more than one (1) R8888 is used, set the panel
type switch to “main” on the first R8888 and set the panel type switch to “expansion” on the second, third
or fourth R8888.
8. Conventional Zone Valve Zoned System – Refer to Figure 19. Wiring to the most popular models of zone valves is given
in Figure 20.
Connect the thermostat of each zone and the zone valve for that zone to the R8889 control. If an Alliance™ indirect water
heater is used, connect the Alliance™ thermostat and zone valve to the “zone 1” terminals of the R8889.
Set the thermostat heat anticipator to 0.12 amps.
NOTICE
The Honeywell R8889 Control is available in two three (3) zone models and two four (4) zone models.
Burnham recommends using Model R8889A for three (3) zone systems and Model R8889B for four (4) zone
systems. Models R8889C and R8889D have less load capacity and may not operate with certain types of
zone valves. Up to four (4) R8889’s may be used together to provide up to sixteen (16) individual zones.
Only one (1) zone, the first zone of the main control will provide priority zoning for the Alliance indirect
water heater. If more than four (4) zones are required, connect additional R8889’s by wiring the A, B and
C terminals of each control together. Each R8889 requires a 120 volt power supply. If more than one (1)
R8889 is used, set the panel type switch to “main” on the first R8889 and set the panel type switch to
“expansion” on the second, third or fourth R8889.

VII. Modular Installation
A. General Guidelines
1. Read and follow all venting, combustion air,
water piping, gas piping and electrical instructions
contained in this manual unless otherwise instructed
in this section.
E. Gas Piping
1. Refer to National Fuel Gas Code, Local Codes and
Tables 7 and 8 for gas pipe sizing.
Table 9: Modular Boiler Water Manifold Sizing
2. Consult Local Building Codes or National Fuel Gas
Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z222.3 for restrictions and
instructions on modular boiler installations.
B. Module Sizing
Burnham recommends sizing each boiler in a modular
system to provide 20 % of the combined heating load
where ever possible.
C. Venting
1. Each boiler must have an individual vent pipe.
Refer to Venting Section of this manual for venting
guidelines and options.

WARNING
WARNING
Do not manifold vent pipes together.
If gas pressure in the building is above ½ psig,
an additional gas pressure regulator is required.
Using one additional regulator for multiple
boilers may result in unsafe boiler operation.
The additional regulator must be able to properly
regulate gas pressure at the input of the smallest
boiler. If the regulator cannot do this, two or
more additional regulators are required. Consult
regulator manufacturer and/or local gas supplier
for instructions and equipment ratings.
2. The maximum vent length for each boiler is fifty
(50) equivalent feet.
3. The minimum horizontal distance between vent
terminations is one (1) foot. Additional horizontal
distance is desirable to avoid frost damage to the
building. Vent terminations must be at least twelve
(12) inches above the ground plus the expected
snow accumulation.
CAUTION
Installing multiple vent terminations close
together promotes frost buildup on buildings.
To minimize this possibility, extend the distance
from the building to the end of the vent
termination and increase the horizontal distance
between terminations.
4. Multiple vertical vent pipes may be piped through
a common conduit or chase so that one roof
penetration may be made. Each vent termination
must be one (1) foot from other terminations.
D. Water Piping (See Table 9 and Figure 21)
F. Electrical
1. Each boiler must be provided with a fused
disconnect and service switch.
2. Install wiring in accordance with requirements of
authority having jurisdiction. In the absence of such
requirements, follow the National Electric Code,
NFPA 70 and/or CSA C22.1 Electric Code.
G. Modular Boiler Control Systems
Contact a controls manufacturer such as Honeywell or
Tekmar to properly apply a modular control system.
Common systems may use outdoor temperature, return
water temperature or both to stage the boilers.
Installing a low water cutoff in the system piping of
modular systems is strongly recommended and may be
required by Local Codes.

E. Fill entire heating system with water and vent air
from system. Use the following procedure on a Series
Loop or multi-zoned system installed as per Figure 11
or 12 to remove air from system when filling.
WARNING
The maximum operating pressure of this boiler
is 30 psig. Never exceed this pressure. Do not
plug or change pressure relief valve.
4. Starting with one circuit at a time, open zone valve
or shut-off valve in system supply and return piping.
5. Open hose bib.
6. Open fill valve (Make-up water line should be
located directly after full port ball valve in system
supply piping between air scoop and expansion
tank).
7. Allow water to overflow from bucket until discharge
from hose is bubble free for 30 seconds.
8. Close the opened zone valve or shut-off valve for
the zone being purged of air, then open the zone
valve or shut-off valve for the next zone to be
purged. Repeat this step until all zones have been
purged. At completion, open all zone valves or
shut-off valves.
9. Close hose bib, continue filling the system until the
pressure gauge reads 12 psi. Close fill valve.
(Note - If make-up water line is equipped with
pressure reducing valve, system will automatically
fill to 12 psi. Follow fill valve manufacturer’s
instructions).
10.Open isolation valve in boiler supply piping.
11.Remove hose from hose bib.
F. Confirm that the boiler and system have no water
leaks.
G. Prepare to check operation.
1. Obtain gas heating value (in Btu per cubic foot)
from gas supplier.
NOTICE
2. Connect manometer to pressure tap on gas valve.
Use 1/8 NPT tapping provided.
If it is required to perform a long term pressure
test of the hydronic system, the boiler should
first be isolated to avoid a pressure loss due to
the escape of air trapped in the boiler.
To perform a long term pressure test including
the boiler, ALL trapped air must first be removed
from the boiler.
A loss of pressure during such a test, with no
visible water leakage, is an indication that the
boiler contained trapped air.
3. Temporarily turn off all other gas-fired appliances.
1. Close full port ball valve in boiler supply piping.
2. Isolate all zones by closing zone valves or shut-off
valves in supply and return of each zone(s).
3. Attach a hose to the vertical hose bib located prior to
the full port ball valve in the system supply piping.
(Note - Terminate hose in five gallon bucket at a
suitable floor drain or outdoor area).
4. Turn on gas supply to the boiler gas piping.
5. Confirm that the supply pressure to the gas valve is
14 in. w.c. or less. Refer to Table 5 for minimum
supply pressure.
6. Open the field installed manual gas shut-off valve
located upstream of the gas valve on the boiler.
7. Using soap solution, or similar non-combustible
solution, electronic leak detector or other approved
method. Check that boiler gas piping valves, and
all other components are leak free. Eliminate any
leaks.
DANGER

Important Product Safety Information
Refractory Ceramic Fiber Product
Warning:
The Repair Parts list designates parts that contain refractory ceramic fibers
(RCF). RCF has been classified as a possible human carcinogen. When
exposed to temperatures about 1805°F, such as during direct flame contact,
RCF changes into crystalline silica, a known carcinogen. When disturbed as a
result of servicing or repair, these substances become airborne and, if inhaled,
may be hazardous to your health.
AVOID Breathing Fiber Particulates and Dust
Precautionary Measures:
Do not remove or replace RCF parts or attempt any service or repair work
involving RCF without wearing the following protective gear:
1. A National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
approved respirator
2. Long sleeved, loose fitting clothing
3. Gloves
4. Eye Protection

ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Applicability: The limited warranties set forth above are extended
only to the original owner at the original place of installation within the

3.Proper Installation: The warranties extended by U.S. Boiler Co., Inc.
are conditioned upon the installation of the residential grade water boiler
in strict compliance with U.S. Boiler Co., Inc. installation instructions.
U. S. Boiler Co., Inc. specifically disclaims liability of any kind caused by
or relating to improper installation.

inconvenience or loss of time. U.S. Boiler Co., Inc. liability under these
warranties shall under no circumstances exceed the purchase price paid

installation of the boiler, although failure to comply with this request will
not void the owner’s rights under these warranties.

notify the installer, who will in turn notify the distributor. If this action is
not possible or does not produce a prompt response, the owner should

requested by U.S. Boiler Co., Inc. to ship these parts prepaid to U.S.
Boiler Co., Inc. at the above address for inspection or repair. In addition,
the owner agrees to make all reasonable efforts to settle any disagreement arising in connection with a claim before resorting to legal remedies
in the courts.

you may also have other rights which vary from state
to state.
