steam coming from condensate tank
Hello as you can see i have two condensate returns coming back to this tank one doesn’t have a cap on it. which is why i’m here to cap this. this tank was put in a few years ago and has been a problem for this building. I’m thinking the pipe with out a cap should have a taller water seal as with it open steam and water are shooting out of it. so the building has water hammer everywhere. i found boiler overfilled and tank also full took about 40 gallons of water out of the tank. before the sight glass line was visible.
do i need to raise the uncapped pipe
im also thinking about raising both of the returns loop seals as the uncapped pipe is only a few inches above the boiler water line and the newer looking pipe is only a 18” above
