The unit's top vent connections are approved to PVC, CPVC, and polypropylene pipe, and a user display interface with text display is easy to program and includes outdoor reset for maximum fuel economy.

"I just ripped it out !"
This Utica boiler has been a complete failure with so many lockouts and ignition failures I cannot even count! Two thoughts, the reset button should be outside the cover and it should have an App so I could rest this piece of shit from my bed when I wake up in a freezing cold house. Utica reps were here rebuilt the whole unit in place and it still didn't work. So today I replaced it with a Lochinvar Knight! I'd love a class action suit.
