My customer has a gas fired steam boiler with a condensate tank. The rpz drips water and now the boiler is short cycling. I have the pressuretrol set at 6 psi and its reaching that quickly. Any input would help. I'm confused

    First...

    I would recommend that you move this thread to the"Strictly Steam" forum. You'll get more responses there.



    Second, set the pressuretrol down to 1 psi or less. The system doesn't need any more than that and setting it too high actually causes it to heat slower and creates other issues.
