Can I Leave Boiler Empty for A While
I thought I had posted this but it’s not in my threads. Sorry if this is posted twice.
Burnham Gas Steam 20yrs old?
My drain valve is dripping and I’m going away. Can I drain my boiler to below the valve and leave it like that for two weeks or is that bad?
I don’t think I’ll have time to replace it before I leave.
On replacing it. The valve is attached to a 4 inch nipple and screwed in to the boiler. A plumber said I can just unscrew the whole assembly and replace it. Seems simple enough. Where it screws in to the boiler there is a giant nut. Do I need to secure or loosen this nut? I can’t really reach it to get a wrench around it.
Sorry there are no pics. I’m sure that would be helpful. I’m at work but I’m hopeful someone knows what I’m talking about - but wise. I’ll add pics when I can.
Single pipe steam radiators, if that matters.
