The indirect in the back of that picture has copper sweat female adapters for the domestic connections but dielectrics on the boiler connections. I am undecided as to whether dielectrics work at all but I have never heard of them being on the boiler connections and not the domestic connections. I have seen it on all four before though.

Instead of blocks, how about using a plastic condenser pad?

They are cheaper and won't melt. It's not up to me but I like the blocks. Almost everyone around here uses blocks, just how it's done, been done that way for prolly almost a century. Occasionally you'll see a pad poured but that's mostly done by homeowners who are zealous.


My manager is actually partial to 3" pvc pipe sections cut like 3" long. His argument is that it's essentially free as we have tons of extra pipe, and it's easy to adjust the height as you can shave it with a sawzall. On a number of occasions us guys have done that, sometimes with 4" or 2", because blocks weren't ordered/sent.




But it's not really up to him either so blocks it is. If it ain't level you shim by smashing some copper pipe flat or flatter.

Hereís a water heater install I did where I used a plastic condenser pad in a water heater shed so it didnít sit on the concrete. I see most guys just throwing bricks under it to raise it up a bit.

Hey man, looks great, but we don't do them outside in a cabinet. Ours are in the basement for all to see. I guess customers are used to seeing them on blocks and plumbers are used to putting them on blocks.
