Constant water feeding

PatD Member Posts: 2

I'm feeding water into my Weil-mcclain at least twice a day. I've checked for leaks everywhere and see nothing. I've also went outside an looked at chimney multiple times and don't see anything. I was told that if the boiler had a hole in it this would be visible with some smoke coming out of chimney. I'm at a loss right now.

late last winter I did have an issue with the pressure going high and the unit shutting off. A pipe that led to an ARCO Multi-port Air Eliminator was clogged with years of sediment.  However once this was cleaned I noticed that I needed to add water more frequently. Is this a coincidence or could this be the issue? I do hear some air escaping out of the port but it doesn't seem to be too much. There's also zero pressure on the gauge now when the system runs. I'm getting plenty of heat in radiators but the constant feeding of water doesn't seem right.
