BOILER HELP (making decision)


I am new to this forum, I see that there are lots of helpful information posted. I am hoping that someone can advice me correctly.
Here is my issue:

I have a current Pensotti R-4 boiler that I am looking to get replaced because of age, plus I had problems with the low water sensor (there was no water in the boiler). The repair tech that came out said that I needed a new guage, new low water vavle, and possibly a new burner.

I started getting estimates from various companies: The prices range from $4900 to about $6500.

The current setup is, I have in-direct hot water with 2 zones. I am being quoted either a Peerless WBV-03 or a Burnham MPO 115.

My question is, which is the better boiler, what is the difference between the two, should I replace the hot water tank the same or can it wait, and finally around what price range should I be looking at just to replace a 2 zone, in-direct hot water boiler?

Any help would be GREAT!!! I am tota

What ever price they charge in your area.

Only contractors in your area can know what to charge.

Both boilers are good boilers, the Peerless WBV has been around longer then the Burnham MPO.

The indirect can be changed out at a later date if it fails.
