    Got around to moving my exp. tank 7 foot higher. I had it on the floor and was having to add air every few months. I also hooked up a piece of pex from the micro bubble air eliminator to the top of the expansion tank. so far I haven't lost any pressure and I gained more floor space for firewood.

    Sounds great. Please keep us up to date on how it works out. It certainly seems like your configuration should work right and save some money.

    I'd like to do something like that, but the only possibility I have come up with that it could be moved to is the master bedroom. No doubt it would work great, but I think I'd be living alone pretty quick.
