In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
So, I'm going to be honest at this point I have no clue what I'm doing.
Wre finally got power back after Sandy last night and the system did a 12 degree recovery. After this it fired back up one more time as things started to cool again and I got some water hammer in a pipe. Ever since this I keep getting hammer every time the system starts up. While this is going on, if you sit in our downstairs bathroom listenig to the radiator it huffs and puffs a lot and you hear boiling / girgling in the pipe below the floor.
I have no idea why, I realize the two take offs in this area have no insulation in a crawl space and really should, but it went all winter last year with zero problems. Sandy was pretty bad here, but I don't think the house moved. :)
Right now I am draining the boiler and I'm going to rinse it out the best I can as the water was pretty stinky and dirty. Honestly it still smells like the old boiler did so maybe the long run time just washed more crap down, I don't know. I didn't notice any oil or residue in the gauge glass this morning so I doubt it needs skimmimg, but maybe I'll do that as well.
