I've been thinking lately about the way we treat the condensate from condensing boilers and furnaces.
First off, It appears that propane condensate is more prone to damaging copper and cast piping than natural gas. There is nothing scientific about the observation, Ive just never seen the damage on natural gas systems that I have seen with propane.
I am thinking that the condensate neutralizers that everyone sells probably work pretty well as long as the media is changed regularly. It doesn't seem like like most systems get changed ever.
My question is,has anyone tested the PH before and after neutralizing?
Has anyone tested an unmaintained neutralizer?
Is my observation about Propane and Natural gas true or my imagination?
How bad is it to put untreated condensate in cast pipes?
It seems this is one of those things everyone does without much consideration, or maybe it is just me.
