need a steam pressure cycle switch
I need to replace my steam boiler pressure switch. I have read on this board from a few different threads for a two floor home I should set the switch to .5 psi and the differential to 1 psi. The problem is my boiler keeps going up past those settings to 4 psig and then shuts down. I have changed the gauge with a brand new one to make sure it was not a faulty reading but the gauges are correct. The current pressure switch is a Honeywell but I would like to know if there is something better on the market. A friend of mine bought a brand new Honeywell switch and it was not operating at the correct pressures he set it to. Is there anything better out there?
