Rotted Steam Boiler - Replacement
This time, the leak wasn't WM's fault (wink wink). Major deterioration most likely caused by copper/dielectric reaction, and a general lack of bad advice for proper maintenance.
Installed (our favorite) Smith/Carlin combo. Upsized drop header, which is unfortunately hard to see in the pictures. Upgraded main vents.
I've also seen something for the first time on this job. A supply pipe, nearly 50% blocked by sludgy clay sediment. A few spots of this main were also rotted right through because of poor pitch allowing condensate to settle in one spot. The pipe was obviously changed at least one time before. But, of course, the pitch was never corrected.
Thanks to Rod for helping our customer, via email, with doing the proper research and asking the right questions for this job. She sung your praises the whole time.
