Case: installation of a 450 lb water heater on the roof
The previous boiler in the restaurant, serviced by Almco Plumbing, had become non-functional, impacting its ability to provide adequate heating and hot water supply. This situation posed a significant operational challenge for the restaurant, potentially leading to customer dissatisfaction and compromised service quality. Thus, a swift resolution was crucial to maintain business continuity.
The existing boiler had experienced a breakdown, necessitating its replacement to ensure the uninterrupted operation of the restaurant’s heating and hot water systems.
Two viable options were identified for addressing the issue:
🔷 Installation of a tankless water heater
This option involved the installation of a new tankless water heater, which offered on-demand hot water supply. However, implementing this solution required redesigning the gas line system, resulting in higher costs compared to the alternative.
🔷 Reinstallation of a new boiler
The second option entailed reinstalling a new boiler, provided by Almco Plumbing, using a crane to remove the old one from the roof and replace it with a new unit. This option allowed for a more straightforward installation process without the need for extensive modifications to the gas line system, potentially reducing costs
Based on careful evaluation and cost considerations, Almco Plumbing proceeded with the reinstallation of a new boiler as the preferred solution. This approach allowed for a more cost-effective and efficient replacement, ensuring minimal disruption to the existing infrastructure
The implementation plan, executed by Almco Plumbing, consisted of the following key steps:
✔ Removal of the old boiler
Almco Plumbing drains, disconnected, and safely removed the old boiler from the premises using a crane
✔ Installation of the new boiler
A new, high-quality boiler provided by Almco Plumbing was installed in the vacant space, ensuring proper alignment with the existing infrastructure
✔ Connection and testing
Almco Plumbing connected the new boiler to the existing system, including the storage tank, and all necessary connections were tested to ensure functionality and safety
✔ Additional components
To enhance the system’s efficiency, Almco Plumbing added a new ball valve, pressure and temperature gauges, a check valve, and a newer circulation pump
