    We replaced a steam boiler 2 seasons ago. Went to client for some routine maintenance and found both Gorton #1's hissing slightly. Both were about 210°!? Otherwise, system is whisper quiet and works well. Both are on 6" nipples above mains. Anybody else have issues. Never have been a problem before.
