Gas boiler

HenryTHenryT Member Posts: 128

I was wondering if my LWCO is installed incorrectly.

Should it be installed next to the site glass, halfway down?

mine is installed parallel top and bottom to the site glass.

how can it detect low water if installed like that?

    It should be installed

    below the water line typically on the boiler. The water line of a float type should be slightly below the bottom of the guage glass.

    Send a photo and we will be able to tell if it is correct.
