Can I replace this pressuretrol with a vaporstat
The pressuretrol on my boiler seems to be faulty. Cuts out if I set pressure below 2psi and does not come back on. Also starts clicking and then boiler goes off and comes back on several times.
1. Should I replace with a vaporstat instead of a pressuretrol?
2. What are the positives and negatives of replacing with vaporstat?
3. Can any competent plumber install a vaporstat or does it take expertise with steam?
Here is a picture of the pressuretrol and thanks to Todd ECR a manual for the boiler (which obviously does not answer the question).
