Legend / How's Everyone's Legend Holding Up?
« on: November 20, 2020, 01:24:51 AM »
The last post in this thread was about 3 years ago and was just curious how everyone's Legend is holding up. I am on my 10th year with my 4135 and it's doing pretty good. I had to have a leak in the firebox welded about 2 years ago and the cleanout door on the back is starting to rust through in one spot, other than that its holding up. I have done some other things that have nothing to do with the stove; the main and costliest thing being replacing the underground wrapped lines with Rehau foam filled lines this summer. It had became saturated with groundwater. Doing this I decided to abandon the domestic hot water coil in the stove and install a 20 plate exchanger and I must say I wish I would've done this from the beginning.

Just finished installing a Legend OWB. The house is approx 1,500 sq. feet. The heat exchanger is 100,000 BTU and is installed on the return side of the blower as it would have been a lot more work to put on their other side, it seems its not heating as it should when it comes out of the vents upstairs. The supply line going into it is so hot it burns your hand, the return line coming out of it is a little warm but nothing like the supply line, so the heat is going somewhere but not through my heat vents. The exchanger is approx 120 ft from the furnace. The aquastat is set at 180 degrees. It has 2 1inch pex lines and it reduced to 3/4 inch just before the exchanger the company I hired to install it put on some kind of electric valve on so when it calls for heat it opens and then it is circulated through the exchanger. When its not calling for heat it is not circulating through the exchanger. The circulating pump is a taco 007. Any suggestions are appreciated.

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Underground Piping

I just purchased a Legend L-4135 OWB, and I need a little advice on insulating the underground pipes. I plan on running 2 one inch pex pipes in the foam insulation sleeves and then wrapping that in HVAC bubble wrap and then putting that in corrugated drain tile. The run will be approximately 90 feet to the basement wall. Also do I need a separate heat exchanger to heat domestic hot water? Thanks in advance for your help.

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Price for a Taylor water stove

Does anyone know what would be a fair price for a used Taylor T450 that is about 10 years old with no known problems or defects? I am looking to purchase one from a guy, he is asking $3,250. Seems a little steep to me, but I know nothing about the value of a used owb. Thank you in advance.
