How often should a steam boiler be cleaned?
I started the heating season with a new Slantfin boiler (in a one pipe system). I am under the assumption that as soon as the water line starts moving more than +/_ .5" or when the water starts looking rusty it's time to clean the boiler, but for many weeks it took only 3 or 4 days before that would happen. By now I can get about 2 weeks and if I do a quick skim it adds a few more days before it looks like it needs cleaning again. I'm wondering if this is normal, because the VXT programable water feeder I have will really never be able to track water usage if I'm cleaning and/ or topping off the water level manually as often as I'm doing.
