How to seal a Boiler Combustion Chamber
My Boiler's combustion chamber was leaking bad the other day. We had to take it apart as we were troubleshooting some issues and then when we put it back together LP and exhaust was leaking out. It got to the point where it actually wouldn't fire. We took it apart and tried to reseat the gasket and even added high heat silicone. We put it all back together and it worked for awhile and then a small leak developed again. Enough for the boiler to not fire.
I am trying to track down a new gasket now, but do you guys know of any other kind of sealant product we can try to get this thing sealed up well long term?
The gasket that came with the boiler seems kind of flimsy / bad. It is not a great fit, so I think the margin for error to reseat it perfectly is pretty low.
