Do I need to drain condensate trap Rinnai E50C???????

nibs Member Posts: 516
Dear wall, have all lines loops glycol' ed to 14deg F, run for a week to ensure mixing, now blown out dry. Boiler dry, loops dry, manifold dry, leaving for warmer climes for next 4 months. Do I need to drain the condensate trap on the boiler? (some disassembly required).
Need to know today as we leave in the morning.
Thanks for this and for all the other help we have received here.
Regards, Tony.

    I would guess you should drain that trap.
    Being a condensate trap that should be cleaned occasionally it should not be a major tear down.

    What did you do for the rest of the house?

    I agree, gonna drain it.
    The house is still in construction, pretty much just lock it up and leave. We have not connected the domestic water so that is not a worry. Just played spiderman on the roof, took off the chimney & capped it.
    Hoping to move in next fall, & may not go south next year, for the first time since we retired in 98.
