    Hey everyone, this may seem like a really silly question, but I'll ask anyway. So I am low on pellets since it is the end of the season and I had to stop the PB 105 for a few days since I had surgery. It is now switched to oil. I was wondering if there was any way to heat the water in the PB 105 with the oil boiler so that I don't use a ton of pellets to get it up to temp?? My setup is the water going from the PB to the oil and then onto the house. The water returns to the oil boiler then back to the PB. Hope that makes sense. Any ideas?? I know this is probably impossible and a really silly question ha ha, but any replies are welcomed!! Thanks....

    If the supply of the pellet boiler connects to the supply of the oil boiler, if the return of the pellet boiler connects to the pellet boiler return, if a circulator is used to circulate water between both boilers, just run the circulator to equal the temps in both boilers, don't know if yours is set up this way.

    No need to turn any valves off if the circulator positioning just circulates water between both boilers.
