Help from water treatment experts

Howdy Wallies
We got the results back from a lab regarding a leaking tube on a vertical fire tube low pressure steam boiler. The lab thinks the cause may be from sulfur and chlorine in the boiler water. Any idea what would cause that to be there?

    It probably entered with the fill water, maybe sample that? Although water can change from time to time, depending on the aquifer it came from. Sulfur water is usually easy to spot (smell)
