For many of our customers, it makes more sense to buy a pre-assembled kit for boilers like Cleaver Brooks*, York Shipley, Kewanee, and others for the annual open and close of their boiler, instead of purchasing the individual parts.

Although purchasing the individual parts is an option, purchasing a pre-assembled kit will be more convenient and take care of your open/close.
