Pigtail loop

Chris_83 Member Posts: 24
I'm going to remove and clean the pigtail that my pressuretrol sits upon.  When I reinstall it, should I put some water into the pigtail to isolate the pressuretrol from the steam in the boiler?  If so, how much water should go into it?

    I would add some.  I poured in a cup or so just to be sure it filled.  Any extra will just spill over into the boiler.
