    Water is flowing and will be filled tonight.

    The plumbing was pressure tested with air and is tight. I'm finishing up some wiring to the BLT controller and the boiler pump behind the tank then should be able to fill the boiler water jacket.

    The well is taking it like a champ. Plenty of water in the ground this time of year. Mighty tasty too.

    I only have about 1/2 to 3/4 a cord of dry wood right now. Going to be burning lots of ash this coming winter.

    I'll post some learnings thst I had about the BLT controller. It may benefit @jpelizza with his storage tank hes trying to install.

    Why did you choose to use the BLT controller?

    Two main reasons;
    1) Its a seamless way to integrate the wood boiler/storage bank system and the existing oil boiler with the ability to put the wood boiler in lead with automatic transfer to the oil boiler for backup.
    2) I purchased the wood boiler through Tarm and I'm not capable of building a control scheme by myself. Their product is tried and true and has instructions and is built to be used generically with any kind of source for a backup.

    The Froling boiler does not have the ability to provide the BLT function. Maybe in the future they will but not this model.

    Now if theres some sort of emergency and I cannot get home to load/fire the boiler the house will stay warm with the oil as backup when the storage tankndroos below a certain temperature that I can set.

    Plus BLT makes everyone think about a bacon sandwich and that makes us happy.
