We have our old WMC EGH-85 boiler's 2 Honeywell pressuretrolls, pigtails, Safguard 400 water feeder, and gauge glass left form the boiler replacement last year. Do these have any value or use with our new WMC EG 75 boiler or would they be of use to someone else? Not sure if ebay, craiglsist, etc. is a place for them, or just the garbage.

    Be careful if the old pressure controls may contain a mercury switch

    The seem nearly identical (at least on the outside) to the new Honeywell pressuretrolls on our new boiler. I think they were from the old boiler initial install in the late 80s, then the block was replaced in the late 90s in the 10th year under warranty. Maybe a long history of rusting out in that basement boiler room? The old boiler was quite corroded. We're working on getting our fresh water intake under control by addressing the possible leaks on our new boiler.
