Update: DIY Electric Boiler Installation

On my visit to the ‘Acres I got my electric boiler hooked up. It worked really well at 140 deg F. I didn’t have a great load and next visit I’ll push it up to 180 deg where I’ll get a lot better heat transfer out of the radiators. No real hitches other than the TACO electronic low water cut off is a lot more sensitive that I’d like. On initial start-up I had to power cycle it to get it out of “service required” mode.. It’s also very sensitive to air pockets but it resets automatically.

Update: Electric Boiler installed. It worked well in testing, unfortunately the weather was unseasonably warm so I couldn't give it a really good load for testing besides the start-up from ~60 deg F loop water temperature.
