Will it last? A peak inside my Slantfin Liberty II
Took the smoke pipe off for an inspection of the boiler sections. I notice some red spots on around the nipples (and maybe a few are missing?). Is this normal? Something to be concerned about?
I need to make a decision on installing a replacement oil tank on this boiler --- originally installed by the previous owner in 2005 (brand new and well maintained, he said). Or replacing and converting to a gas boiler (we have for gas hw and cooking). Ideally I would install a replacement oil tank and hope to get another 5+ years out of this system.
No sign of leaks on the floor around the boiler. Haven't needed to add water so far this season --- had a loss of approx 1/8 - 1/4 in the sight glass since flushing and refilling two weeks ago. Appreciate any input.
