Changes From Previous Model

 

This model is a MAJOR redesign of HHE-x00-07x

 

Exactly like HHE-x00-07x except

 

  • Zone pumps now have plastic covers over the moving parts
  • Engine preheat pump is PLE-100-830 - Stir Pump. NOT AVAILABLE
  • On this model the entire drain valve is plastic. Replace with Drain Valve Kit or Brass Drain Valve Kit
  • Use ELX-630-001 electric relay or ELE-630-002-FRU kit that already has the relay attached to a cover.
  • Has regular size radiator cap.
  • Filled with Camco -100 Boiler coolant.  First model in the Hydro-Hot series to use the special coolant.
