Steam Boiler help needed.
So I have a Peerless Boilers steam boiler series 63/64 that was recently installed.
1.) I added 8-way boiler cleaner and skimmed the rust out. so the water now is a nice pink color.
2.) I turned on the boiler when the water glass shows the water level at the mark where the arrow is.
3.) after 2-3 hours, I come back downstairs and the water glass is FULL and the boiler stopped with flashing reset light. (my best guess is that water evaporated until it hit bottom and the automatic water feeder turns on and fills it up too much) but the interesting part is that it forced the machine to go to reset mode. (or auto shutoff)
4.) I take out what appears to be 5 buckets of water, to get the water level back to where the mark is.
5.) I turn on the unit and the water goes from where the mark was in the water glass and goes down to about the bottom of the water glass and stays there for awhile.
This is my first time with a boiler, and the guys who installed it cant figure out what is wrong with it. we replaced all the valves and turned off the 1 radiator that potentially has a leak.
any one have any suggestions? I'm at a loss here.
