Q:I have a Amtrol 41 gal. Indirect water heater system It takes 3 to 4 minutes to get hot water to my faucet. Can I add a Watts recirculating pump to it
by|Feb 10, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  There is nothing about the Amtrol boiler mate or any other indirect fired hot water heater that precludes you from having or installing recirculation. An indirect fired how water heater, is essentially just like any other tank type hot water heater other than the heat source being hot liquid running through a coil rather than a flame, heat pump or element. Being a plumber that does a lot in hydronics every home I have ever had has had both an indirect fired hot water heater coupled with recirculation. However, I have always employed a dedicated return line making my hot water circuit a big loop. I the idea or creating a cross connection by using a transfer valve just goes against what I have always been taught.

    Q:can't find information for the amtrol 41 gallon model TD-41L TOP mode settings
    by|Jan 21, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  I am sorry but I am not sure what you mean by mode settings. To the best of my knowledge the top down unit you reference typically come with a simple on/off aqua stat. When the temperature is low the switch will close and turn on the circuit. Typically that circuit will include a boiler and circulation pump. Amtrol does or did offer a “smart control” for some of their units. This digital control had built in post purge functions to pull residual heat out of the boiler and other options. Information about this control can be found on the Amtrol web site.

      Q:Can you use this with the Energy Kinetics system 2000?
      by|Oct 27, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Energy Kinetics is a producer of boilers with a unique go to market strategy. They provide boilers directly to local dealers, often fuel companies and bypass the traditional plumbing channel. The company and dealers stress the products’ unique design in marketing it to customers in their exclusive territories. This strategy ties you into a long-term relationship with that installer. The science of combustion and heating water is very well understood. The same results can be achieved with equipment available from and that can be worked on by multiple sources. In the end a boiler is only one component in a much larger system. The answer to your question depends more on your overall system design and piping layout than the brand of boiler. The fact that it is that brand just adds a little more complexity in that most plumbers will have never worked on one. Most systems can accommodate an indirect fired hot water heater. My concern is that due to the unique way this brand is often plumbed and the proprietary controls your plumber may find it more complicated than it should be or there may be a different unit that will be much more installer friendly and therefore less expensive. I would suggest you have a plumber with a good knowledge of system design look at your system before moving ahead. If you would like to talk about this further, you can give me a call.

        Q:Is there a certain procedure to lower the temperature setting if tank is making to hot of water
        by|Jun 6, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  This tank comes with a factory installed adjustable aqua-stat. You would normally turn the dial up or down to control the water temperature. For example, I have my aqua-stat set much higher than you are supposed to; 140F. Therefore, the circulation pump sends 180 F boiler water through the tanks coil until the potable water in the tank has reached 140F. At that temperature the aqua stat is satisfied, and the pump shuts off. If I still had your children in the house, I would set the temperature to 120 F to mitigate the risk of scalding.

          So far, so good.
          So far, the water heater is working fine. It was easy to install, with all the connections on the top. There two things I am less then thrilled about. The first is that you have to install a T so you can install the T and P valve. It has to be installed in the hot water outlet, as there is not a separate place for it. The second one is that the aquastat only has the 120 temperature setting marked. It doesn't keep the temperature as close as I would like. But I was installing a tempering valve anyway, so that wasn't a problem.

          Ive had three of these. The first was installed when my house was new. The second was a replacement under warranty (the tank rusted out) and third was another replacment under warranty when the tank again rusted out. The second replacement was a total nightmare when the company demanded that I document the serial number of the original unit as well as the replacment. And of course there were several hundred dollars in charges for the work required to replace the units not covered by the warranty. The pros of the boiler mate is that it provides a pretty good hot water supply if you turn it up high enough so that you can mix cold water into it to fill a large bathtub. That magic number is about 160 degrees, which exceeds the perameters that the Boiler mate is designed to operate under. The cons are many. The first being is that your hot water supply is not separate from you heating system, so if you live in a climate where you ordinarily would be able to shut down your heating system for four or five months of warm weather, you cant. And if your boiler malfuctions, you also dont have any hot water. Second, This continual year round operation seems very hard on the boiler. In 19 years in this house I have had to not only replace the boiler mate twice, I have had to also replace the entire boiler once and have had it worked on for one issue or another related to almost continuous operation on average of every year and a half. It has been a very expensive lesson in the downsides of the Boiler mate. This week I have finally had enough. When the plumber gets out here Tuesday to repair thr boiler (again) we are going to decide on a new system independent from the boiler to replace it.

            Failed after 5 years
            Rusted out the bottom, flooded my basement, ruined the control panel on my furnace and the water tank. 400$ for someone to come fix it. Now I have heat but NO hot water. I called them but their warranty will not likely be honored. Piece of junk water heater, junk company. DO NOT BUY.

                Three tanks failed and replaced in ten years.
                First installation of Boilermate water heater 6/16/13. Water heater replaced 7/27/17 due to leaking from connections at the bottom. The water heater was replaced again 4/1/21 due to leaking from connections at the bottom. This new heater is designed differently with the connection ports moved to the top - presumably due to defects in the old design. It is 9/5/23 and I have a plumber coming to inspect the heater leaking from the top and bottom. Never using Amtrol again.

                  Buy a different brand
                  These Amtrol CH tanks are junk. They fail in a few years. We have went through three of them in six years. Amtrol covers the tank under warranty but it must be installed by a plumber so replacement labor costs are over $1k. The last time one failed we worked directly with Worthington Industries (Amtrol) and they reviewed our setup and said it was fine. As a precaution they recommended adding a pressure regulator which we did. Latest installation has the pressure regulator set at 55psi and an expansion tank. Heater still failed leaking at seal in 1year 9 months. These water heaters do not last, choose a different brand.

                    Defective
                    Failed within 5 years. Company refuses to honor the warranty as it is non-transferrable. Would not be anything from this company.

                      This water heater is great! It recovers very quickly yielding plenty of hot water and is very efficient. Thank you!
