Beginning of heating season best practices?
Hello, it's starting to get cold and I'm thinking the system will need to come on in the next few weeks.
I've learned a lot from this site. I've turned the pressure way down, and the system works perfectly.
But I'm still learning. This year I'd like to know how to start up the system properly. I'm wondering if I should drain the boiler, flush it out or ?? I know I need to boil any new water right away and not fill a hot boiler. Any other system start up tasks I should do?
Should I use a water treatment like Boilerpro 903 water treatment or Rectorseal Steamaster Tablets? I understand that I need to keep the PH at approx 9. How do you test the PH?
These confuse me a bit because I have no idea how to actually get them inside the boiler. I mean, there's no hole!
