    like i always do, running the water slowly out the skim port after a week of operation, but if you noticed the gas valve isn't even hooked up yet, so be hard to skim it,lol

    I think @New England SteamWorks was suggested he doesn’t see a skim port. Normally on those side outlet boilers you would install a tee there for skimming, or a nipple and cap on the other side if you’re not using both risers. I guess we’re just not seeing it in the pictures.
