Wetback to triple inlet
« on: February 21, 2015, 10:58:13 PM »
Hi we recently moved to a lifestyle block and are going to rare calves. The shed we are going to use has no power but has a wetback fire installed we have a triple inlet cylinder low pressure cylinder. My question is can we plumb the wetback to the two side inlets, the cylinder will be on a stand the feed from the cylinder will have to drop about a foot to connect to the wetback inlet and the wetback outlet will be slightly higher about an inch then the cylinder inlet. Will this allow it to thermosyphon even though the inlet And outlet on the cylinder are at the same level

Wet back cylinders have 2 configurations side and bottom entry, 25mm connections. the water in and draw off /vent are usually 20mm. the cylinder should be min 600mm above the wetback with the circulators rising to the connections.
and yes this is a Certifying plumbers job.
Have a look on this forum at the possible repercussions for doing restricted work of this nature.
