Rotted boilers. one riser vs. two risers
Has anyone noticed a higher rate of boilers springing holes when only one riser is used as opposed to two risers? I would think that with one riser (even when sized properly) all the steam is heading in one direction. This can lead to water splashing on that side and residual wet spots.
