Chromed return?

The return on this Wiel McLain seems to be chromed - don’t recall ever seeing this before. It lined up properly with the fittings on the boiler but seemed more like a plumbing pipe. Any thoughts?

Sure it is not Galvanised Bill?

It may have been galvanized under the coating (which doesn’t really appear that shiny in the picture), but it certainly seemed like it was chromed. :slight_smile:
