WOW now that is one smart women, in our remodeling I was thrown
completely out of the remodeled kitchen, but gained a coffee bar on one wall
of the dinning room. My concern is with the plumbed in S-1 is a possible
solenoid failure and water pouring out on 8,000 dollars worth of hard wood
I'm considering going back to a reservoir instead of direct
plumbing.. Have not decided which way to go.
Doesn't the S1 use electronic boiler control rather than pstats? Don't know
what solenoid failure you're referring to that would cause a flood.
Regardless anything can fail. If it's a major concern why not just put in a
needle valve in the line and turn off the water when S1 not in use? The
reality is don't hear of pstat failing that often yet it is a possibility,
and they do fail and sometimes in the stuck heating position. Of course I've
heard of brake lines rupturing or brake master cylinder failing which could
and has caused deaths, yet I continue to drive. Guess it'a matter of risk
management and what's acceptable and what isn't. Though I've thought about
PID'ing the Bric' for the sole purpose of not having a pstat since a PID and
SSR would be very very highly unlikely to fail in such a way as to have the
heater on all the time. An added bonus would be no more pstat "click";-)
