 hay techs, I came across few boilers with the heat exchangers dirty causing flame to roll back or cause spark ignitor to not work, any cleaning tools out there to clean heat exchanger on a standard boiler ?

    Maybe a saw saw if it's really bad. N95 is probably a wise idea to wear.

    Is there a trick to cleaning the combustion chamber without the vac pulling out all the insulation? My 5hp Ridgid vac with a bag inside did great for the CI plates, there was no soot in the air. But I was wondering if it was too powerful for the chamber.
