I just put in a new above ground 275 gal tank to replace my old 550
underground which is approaching 20 years. Anyway, I'm about to run
the copper line to the burner and I notice I have a bleed line coming
back from the burner to my old tank. My question: how do I route the
return line back into the tank? Through one of the 2" openings on the
top? How do I adapt the 3/8" copper through this 2" opening?
Drop the copper tube thru a compression fitting.
The tube should extend to within ~3" of the tank bottom.
Be sure the lines are *well* protected from any kind of
damage. Include required shutoff valve(s) on the
Although you could use the burner as a one-pipe system,
running the return line will make for a better running
