Have to refill steam boiler once every two weeks
Hello everyone, I hope everyone is staying warm!
With the weather in teens these past 2 weeks here in NJ I realized that I have to add about a gallon to a gallon and a half of water to my Weil McLane EG 40 steam boiler every two weeks. Normally, during milder weather temps, I can last a month without adding any water. My radiator vents are all new and don't leak steam, no leaks in the pipes, and the pressure is low. The boiler does run a lot right now. I know some water does evaporate with each cycle, but a gallon in just two weeks.... ? Is it excessive?
