    With what you know so far, what's your choice?

    If you need more info and interpretation of that info, what info and interpretation would that be?

    I just have that feeling that I will learn a lot in this thread. :D

    I am leaning towards the Peerless for I know a few people that have them and they have not had any trouble with them. As for the burner I think I am going with a beckett burner for that's the type of burner I have now on my Well Mclain. It really is a tough decision. My old boiler lasted 30
    years . I am going to keep digging and researching the Peerless any thoughts...

    With things being designed by computer nowadays the new stuff will probably last one month past warranty. Human designers are less certain of themselves so they put in a lot of safety factors.

    My furnace is from '82 but I have kept it going because I don't want new, computer-controlled hardware because I will not be able to repair it.

    From $500 to $4600 for a Beckett, a 9:1 ratio. . .good Gawd!

    I wish my old boiler still worked 30 years no problems. I am really disapointed that more people have not chimed in with their opinions, thank you for your replys. On the burnham pv8h3 or Peeress wbv4
    and also the Carlin or Beckett burner.

    If you do a wider search you may find rankings of these products by the number of stars. In this ordinal ranking system 3 stars are not 3/2 better than 2 stars, they are just better, but
    # of stars x # of people giving the stars
    does give a numerical idea of the better choice.

    Sounds like you need to search with at least four search terms, plus combinations, with or without quotes. And search
    "class action" v. [name of product or company]

    Search on Google for every combination of
    burnham
    Peerless
    Carlin
    Beckett

    with the word
    problem

    If you get too many hits then narrow your search using

    "burnham pv8h3"
    "Peerless wbv4"
    Carlin
    Beckett

    with the word
    problem

    or just
    pv8h3
    wbv4
    Carlin
    Beckett

    with the word
    problem

    The Advanced Search option allows you to connect the words with OR or AND or NOT.
    \/

    Advanced Search
    Find pages with...
    all these words:
    this exact word or phrase:
    any of these words:
    none of these words:
    numbers ranging from: to



    It's many searches. Something useful has to fall out of all this.
