boiler rust

On the "heating help" site click onto "ask questions"; on the "do it yourself" site click onto the "boiler steam & water" section; on the "HVAC-talk" site, click onto the residential heating site.


I have a 2 year old carrier boiler and beckett burner.  Significant amounts of rust are forming in the cleaning.  The boiler is serviced and cleaned regularly.  The technicians have adjusted the boiler so it is running to spec.  Everything reads as fine.  Beckett and Carrier have not been able to resolve this issue.

The issue with the rust is that the rust is getting blown up the chimney and lands on my roof.  The rain and dew then stain my shingles which is a huge problem.

No one has identified the source of the rust and figured out why it is happening.  This cannot be good for my boiler and is definitely not good for my roof shingles.

Any ideas on what is causing the rust or how to stop it from occurring?
