Steam boiler - summer maintenance?

ansky Member Posts: 41
I have a steam boiler and was wondering if any type of routine maintenance is required during the summer months.  Is it necessary to drain the rust out every week like I normally do in the winter?  Should I keep the boiler full or empty in terms of water level?



  • Summer Maintenance

    Keep the boiler full; drain the low water cutoff once a month instead of once a week.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.
