    Maybe,but it's just kinda not a good idea. Seen Oil fired unit Heaters,day tanks, tiger loops and priming pumps, all mounted up high. Not good when something springs a leak!

    Or they move to N Texas, where nothing is built to take the ****ing freezes they know occur so after the cold ****ing weather when shit thaws out you hope you have a fresh can of PVC glue and enough fittings to fix the ****ing leaks

    We are looking for a warm place to move as I write

    On the plus side they shut the whole place down if they get a skiff of snow or ice.

    Yeah, but those boiler penthouses get mighty cold, mighty quick when the oil burner craps out.
