Hydronic Towel Warmer
Hi all - we're nearing sheetrock stage, and are finalizing plumbing details. We have an open-loop hot water circulation system primarily to keep our hot water quickly accessible in a fairly wide layout. I'd like to plumb in a hydronic towel warmer, but can't seem to get a straight answer anywhere.
I've see the Runtal Fain unit which is stainless steel, but is quite pricey, and the rep on the phone was fairly rude. He also seemed to imply that it will be unattractive next to chrome fixtures, which we have everywhere.
I also saw Amba, but can't see if they will work on an open-loop system.
Myson is another brand that makes these things, and some literature online says that they can work with open loop, but the Myson website says closed-loop only.
We can't go electric because the warmer is set to be above a tub, and our inspector informed us that despite what a few salesmen have told us, that is against code.
Anyone have experience with towel warmers on open-loop circ systems?
thanks in advance!
