Question about leaking 8-year old Burnham steam boiler
Eight years ago my plumber installed a new boiler to replace the old one that had failed. This "new" one apparently has developed a leak. While he initially thought it would be covered under warranty, I got this back earlier from him (my plumber) today: " ... received this from the Burnahm rep regarding your boiler: Failure in a steam boiler of this type is not considered a manufacturing defect. Rather it is factor of the age and tightness of the system (piping) as well as the quality of the water in the city, chlorides are not good."
They then went on to offer to sell the plumber a replacement block and base. Plumber has quoted me a total install cost of this block and base of approximately half the cost of a new boiler (installed).
It just seems absurd to me. What's your opinion?
