How to add leak sealer?

Wolverien2005Wolverien2005 Member Posts: 2
I know I have to replace it but moved into a house not even 6 months ago and boiler started leaking recenlt. So doing this as a temporary fix. I will buy a leak sealer from home depot. Where do I put it in? I looked around the web. Picture of my boiler


I have this boiler http://www.peerlessboilers.com/Products/ResidentialBoilers/SeriesWVDV/tabid/117/Default.aspx#dnn_relateddocuments
The instruction says pour it through safely bulb .Any help is appreciated. Sorry for the noob question.

    I feel for ya, but what you're planning is bad idea.

    Don't. Fix the leak or replace the boiler if that's what it takes. The sealer, if it works at all, may seal up the leak -- and get gunked up into a lot of other places which may or may not be repairable.

    Just don't do it.

    Where is the leak? If it's in a return pipe, it will be repairable.

    Also, if you have a tankless coil, the boiler seal will adhere to the exchanger and you'll lose hot water.
    It's getting warm. You've got some time to research equipment and contractors.

    Is this a steam or hot-water system?
