Cleaning sections on caked on silt.
I have a 100 hear old apartment dbuilding with a HBsmith 525 kbtu boiler. This winter one section cracked and when they took it abart there was a very hard caked on sediment blocking the bottom of the sections. The repair guy says that one of my returns must be sucking in dirt. Anyway can these sections be cleaned as this stuff is hard as rock. I was thinking high pressure water cleaning, or is there a solvent i can use. i am also thinking if they cannot be cleaned of replacing with 2 - 250kbtu Weil mcclain units.
