Harder Theoretical Question. What's your opinion on my suggestion for the summer.
So, I know the best way to prepare the steam boiler is to raise the temperature a bit so that the oxygen doesn't oxidize at the water level point. But that's because that's where oxygen comes in contact with the water and enters the water. So raising the water level will actually increase longevity of the tank. BUT, what about burning the oxygen off every 3 months or so? It'll get the house hot but do it when you're out for the day and close the doors so the steam boiler can get nice and hot and burn off the oxygen in the water. I'm assuming it won't do THAT much since oxygen is constantly going into and out of the surface of the water but it will probably help, no?
Why not just empty the steam tank completely for the summer? Clean it out and just empty it so there is no oxygen problem at all? (I read all of Dan's books but I forget. It's been a while.)
