What a disaster

Dave0176 Member Posts: 1,172
Got a call to service and find out why so little heat. I found this disaster, and no the owner won't replace it. Anyway I had to bleed the loops and found a the extrol tank pissing, so I replaced that, (it isn't even piped properly, in fact the whole boiler isn't piped properly, wrong minimum pipe sizes, pumped to the return). I also thought it was under firing which I was right, I clocked the gas meter and found it burning 425,000 BTU, checked pressure was good, so I replaced the gas valve too, and now we're burning the proper 550,000 BTU. Anyway you can lead a horse to water but..........
