Editorial Reviews for this title:
So begins Pumping Away, a book I wrote to describe the workings of hydronic heating systems I tried to use words that made the subject spring to life in a visual way. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and it's been one of our best-selling books for years, both in the US and Canada.
I kept the drawings in this book simple. Even if you've never worked with hydronics before, you'll be able to follow them. The first part of the book deals with boiler room piping and explains how you can put the discoveries of the late, great Gil Carlson to work for you. If you pipe a boiler Gil's way, you'll save time, money and eliminate the need to bleed individual radiators. Literally thousands of contractors have reported great success by following the principles in the first part of this book. I wish I could take credit for those principles, but the genius was Gil Carlson's. I just did my best to tell his story in plain English.
The second half of the book takes the boiler-room piping design and applies it to an entire menu of piping options. Pumping Away contains 122 pages and is an easy read, but I think it's a book that you will refer to again and again. It will save you time and money. Read it, take it seriously, and I think you'll find (as so many other have) that you'll never have to bleed the radiators again - even on jobs with diverter tees. And won't that make life simpler?
