So we decided to get a pool for the kids which led me to do some testing which led me to wondering a few things.
The previous steamer in this house was a Burnham V8 and it rotted out once in 3 years and again after 5 years.
I noticed when I installed my EG series the water seemed awfully rusty before I started using Steamaster.
When I started testing the pool water and my tap water directly I found the ph to be 7.5-8. There's a good amount of calcium in it but what's odd is my total alkalinity is 160-175 ppm.
Does that high TA have anything to do with the water becoming corrosive in a steam boiler? And why would it be so high to begin with?
I have city water and it doesn't taste or smell bad. Leaves white minerals on things though.
