A Very Special MegaSteam

Steamhead Member Posts: 14,324
This is the house where I designed and helped build a one-pipe steam system some ten years ago, which was featured in Plumbing & Mechanical magazine and is referenced in Dan's "Throw-Backs" article. It's owned by the daughter and son-in-law of my old boss. The well water apparently has a chloride problem, which killed the Columbia CSFH-3 boiler. The house sits down the hill from a main highway that gets a lot of salt in the winter.

What's the most corrosion-resistant steamer out there? Read on......
