Low water cutoff and water feed Suggestions

drew1942 Member Posts: 3
I have an old Weil McClain steam boiler Mode E3 ( Model EG currently is similar).
The water feed and the low water cutoff combo stopped working years ago due to leaks, so I started to fill the water manually with no problem. However I plan to leave in the winter coming up for an extended period and I want to add the cutoff and the water feed back.

I just bought the Model 67 Mcdonnell Miller LWCO as I got a good deal on it and now I am looking for a compatible water feed unit to work with it. I have seen several advertised
WFE24 Unimatch
WFE 120 Unimatch

I believe I need the 24 volt versions in each case. I am leaning towards the WFE24 Unimatch unless someone knows of a better part to use. The others are more expensive. I have heard the 101 A-24 gasket leaks
Any ideas?

    We use the Hydrolevel VXT models. Big benefit is that they have a built in water usage meter.

    I'd prefer the Hydrolevel -- I have one, and the built in water meter is very handy indeed.
