Rheem Marathon Water Heater

Good day!

Our technicians at Hellgate Plumbing and Heating recently replaced an A.O. Smith 75 gallon atmospheric vent water heater with a Rheem Marathon 85 gallon electric water heater. These large water heaters are capable of meeting hot water needs for those larger residential homes!

Residential Radiant Heat and Navien Combination Boiler

Happy Wednesday!

Recently, Hellgate Plumbing & Heating completed the rough-in plumbing stage for a residential property. Besides plumbing, we also installed a Navien NCB 240E high efficiency boiler and tankless water heater combination unit, along with laying down pex tubing for the radiant heat! Seeing the exposed pex looks super cool!

York Furnace

Good afternoon everyone!

We recently replaced an old Trane furnace with a new York 80% efficiency furnace. Due to complications with the location and venting of the new furnace, we were not able to upgrade to a higher efficiency furnace (95%+). However, this furnace will still run like a champ and it will work perfectly for this property.

Please call Hellgate Plumbing to get a furnace quote today!

Bathtub Faucet

Happy Friday everyone!

We wanted to share these photos of a bathtub faucet we replaced. This is an older tub that had a faucet with three separate valves. One valve turned on the faucet, and the other two valves were for adjusting hot and cold water temperature. The valves were broken, which could make the water temperature fluctuate even when a toilet flushed! With these older set-ups, Hellgate Plumbing can still find a solution!

We replaced the old faucet and valves with a new Moen faucet head and valve cover plate. This cover plate allowed us to cover the other old valves that will no longer be used.

Call us today if you have a similar set-up and want us to install a new faucet and cover plate!

New Construction Plumbing

Happy Tuesday!

FINAL UPDATE: Commercial Project: 8 Navien Tankless Water Heaters

Hello everyone! Well, we have finally completed this project!

This has been a crazy process for Hellgate Plumbing. It was extremely insightful but very stressful as well. We are so happy to have completed this project and we are thrilled to have our name tagged with this work! The system is running great, and we are pumping out 125 degree water at 46 gallons a minute, which is fantastic!

If you want to look into this project further, visit the page “Our Work” on our website or check out our Facebook page!

We want to thank everyone for the continued support and business. We hope this project can help show our hard work and our ability to make this complicated project look clean and organized!

 

UPDATE: Commercial Project: 8 Navien Tankless Water Heaters

UPDATE!

Good morning everyone! Over the last week, we have managed to mount all of the Navien tankless water heaters to the mounting brackets, set-up the gas, hot and cold water piping, and completed the majority of the venting. The venting was easily the hardest part on this project as we not only had to follow plumbing code, but we wanted it to look clean and organized. We are very proud of all the work we have accomplished so far! This week will be the finished product and we can’t wait to share that with everyone!

In the meantime, here are the photos from last week!

Commercial Project: 8 Navien Tankless Water Heaters

Hello everyone!

To start off 2019 with a big bang, Hellgate Plumbing is currently undergoing a large and exciting commercial project!

This project takes place at a local condominium, where they originally had two 80 gallon Bradford White natural gas water heaters to serve hot water for 46 units. After they both broke down over the holiday season, Hellgate Plumbing stepped in to save the day!

We will be replacing the old water heaters with a Navien tankless water heater system, using 8 tankless water heaters!! Using more than one Navien unit is called a “cascade” system, and a communication cable will link all of the water heaters together. One water heater will serve as the leader of the group, and once hot water demand exceeds its limit, the next water heater will kick on, and so on.

These systems are rarely shown in Missoula, let alone Montana! We are so thrilled to have our team work on this project, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support and approval of the condominium board and property management company. Thank you for believing in our team and letting us work on a fantastic project!

We will continue to post pictures of this project, but here are some pictures from the project currently:

Updating Boiler Elements

Hellgate Plumbing wants to share some pictures from a customer project involving Erie zone valves, a Tekmar zone control, and a Taco ECM smart pump. Even with an older boiler system, we still have the ability to modernize these boiler elements. Updating these elements can help the system perform better, and it can help decrease operating energy levels.

Call us today if you need any of these elements replaced for your boiler system!
