I have a Slant Fin steam boiler that is apx 16 y/o. This season Ive noticed that the boiler is calling for an unusual amount of fresh/new water. Its gotten to the point where I can hear water sloshing about when its running. So bad that I have turned of the water supply to the water feeder. It seems that the sensor probe is impatient and wants to top off the boiler before my condensate has had time to return. I don't get any water hammer though, just sloshing water as if Im below decks of a boat. After a few days, the system finally shuts down as there is not enough condensate that has returned and there is no automatic water feed, so the system shuts down. Thats when I open the water line and let the boiler fill once, then cut the water supply. It will then heat for a few days before I repeat this process. The house is heating fine.
My immediate fear is that while the water source has been shut off, when my electric water feed calls for water, and gets none, I'll burn up the feeder?
The 2d issue is how to remedy the problem.
