              My old boiler went after 18 solid years of service so I went with the Weil McClain Tankless. Delivery was fast and spot on. The unit came well packed and lift service to my driveway.

              This unit is super heavy and comes with some water left in it from testing so have a plan to move it properly.

              Outside of that not much to review. Heat hasn't kicked on here in the North East yet.

                    Purchased gold wtgo 3 in 2004 w beckett burner and honeywell aquastat relays. Tech put in air intake with ductwork to keep chemicals and lint from laundry room out of furnace. Just had yearly cleaning, tech was done in hour says furnace is clean and running great. He changed filters and bled it and good to go, I highly recommend this product,I have 330 oil tank and I go through 1/2 tank every 14 to 16 months, also have pellet stove in basement that vents upstairs. i keep temp at 68 in winter, and i live in ct. buy quality folks its an investment.

                                Had to replace the boiler in my house. Heard many good things about Weil McLain, so I bought it, and glad I did. Only installed it a few days ago, but love it so far. Much more efficient and heats up to temp pretty quick. It provides enough hot water for multiple showers without having the cold gaps. Like the digital display showing the water temp and the system indicators. So far haven't experienced anything negative. If so, I'll update this review.

                                      This new oil fired Weil Mclain boiler replaced my old Weil Mclain (which was way too much boiler for my home - 152,000 BTU!) and brother they really improved over the years. My new WM fired right up by teaming up with a new burner. Nothing but good to say about it.........It's the standard by which all other oil fired boilers are judged IMHO. Also, get a new thermostat - They've improved them also. PEX's shipping great also, got to Alaska with help from me.

                                            Our Weil Mclain boiler had a leak in between the boiler sections, and our service tech recommended replacement, but was way out of our budget. Although it's not recommended (and not for everyone), I installed the new one myself. The unit came with everything needed for a basic install, save the burner, which is mentioned when you try to purchase the boiler (they make it easy and tell you which one you need). Replacement was straightforward; the gold model being a modern equivalent of my 35 year old unit. The unit was tested, and wore the mark of that (there was water in the boiler). The setup was really on the money, and even the furnace tech was surprised on how well it was delivered, and how well it fired out of the box. The controls are so much better than the old ones, and the low water cut off gives me piece of mind. Pex handled the shipping. I have nothing bad to say about my new boiler, and nothing but rave reviews for Pex. Some words of warning have to go here: There's a reason why furnace techs are in business; I was smart, but also very lucky. It took me, the DIY guy, 30 man hours to remove the old, reinstall the new, and get all the wiring and piping done. A plumber/technician will get you up in a long day. How much is your time worth? This unit is HEAVY - Pex is not kidding at the weight of 750 lbs for the shipment. Get a lift gate truck, and a plan to get it down the steps (and the old one out) BEFORE you buy. I have a walkout basement; I don't think I would consider this as a DIY job otherwise. Last, but not least, get all your local codes before you install; National codes don't begin to cover local requirements, and you'll save yourself cutting in controls and valves later if you make sure you know ALL codes (electric, fire, oil and plumbing) before hand. Pex - thank you for making this project as easy and stress free as it could have been. My wife loves the quiet new heat.

                                              Thank you

                                                Gray; I am lucky that I have a walk-out basement, but I still had to go up one step and down another. I took as much off my old boiler as possible to get it out of my basement. I bought a good hand truck with rubber tires, and some cargo straps to secure the boiler. I pulled the old boiler out and it wasn't that bad (I removed the door and the firebox was pretty rusted). I'm not a big guy, but I was able to pull the new boiler around the back (over grass and down a 20' hill) up a step and down another. I had a little help, but I can't see why you can't use the same setup to get your new boiler downstairs. Even consider setting up a come-along to allow someone lower the hand truck down your steps while you control the hand truck itself. If you don't think this is for you, consider hiring a piano or appliance mover to get the parts where they need to go. Finally, use a 2 x 12 and 2 x'6 stack as 'steps' to get your boiler in place. Get the old boiler out of
                                                the way first before you move in the new one. I hope this helps.   -Matthew

                                                Our local lumber yard guy brought his boom truck and lifted the boiler into the basement. We scooted it to its location. We had a very old boiler that got smashed apart with a sledge hammer. I would think that if you could get a motor hoist in to the basement you could lift the old one off the platform and put the new one on. Perhaps the boom truck couldlift the old one out. Good luck

                                                You may be able to, but you would need to find an installer who knows how to convert the burner with after-market parts. Keep in mind that doing so would void the warranty on the boiler.

                                                Yes; mine is hooked up to the old chimney breech; it uses 7" pipe. Make sure you use stove pipe (not duct work). 7" pipe isn't carried by the box stores, so use your local plumbing outfit. Have a professional set and check the draft; its really important.

                                                A higher BTU rating means more capacity. The heat required depends on many factors, including square footage and insulation quality. Please use our BTU Calculator ( http://www.pexsupply.com/pex/control/BTUCalculator ) to get an estimate.
