Multiple problems, here I go again.
I recently went out to look at a steam system that the previous owner worked on. There was a 2nd floor bathroom radiator that was not heating and a 3rd floor radiator that was not heating well. The new owners wanted the bathroom radiator and the 3rd floor radiator to work before they closed. Both pictures speak for themselves. The previous owner chose to replace the 2nd floor bath radiator. Now the new home owner can't open the drawers, (BTW) the bath radiator still doesn't heat. As far as the 3rd floor radiator, it's not the first time I saw this and I'm sure it won't be the last.
When I met the owner he also mentioned the boiler floods and there is water hammer in the system. I disconnected the auto feeder for now and the owner fills the boiler manually.
The total installed radiation in the house is 509sqft. The boiler in the photo is a Dunkirk 150,000 rated at 383sqft. There are no main vents to speak of and the boiler is surging. Another case of the install manual used as a kneeling pad. I did tell them what needs to be done but it appears there is a problem with deciding who will be responsible for the work.
If I were to just replace the bathroom radiator with one that will give them the ability to open the drawers and they choose to ignore the other issues on the system, could I assume this will end up being a reflection on me? Should I do a written evaluation and let them get another opinion? Or is it best to just walk away?
