10 gallons in 60 days acceptable?

Bodycount Member Posts: 39
This is the first floor unit. 

Leaking at the 90 since I replaced the main vent. Silver soldered and epoxy, leaks  until everything gets hot and expands. 

Will be repaired / replaced in off heating season. 

Reset the water feed on 01/03/2023 and it’s been a mild NJ winter so far. 

Boiler is 1994?

Should I be concerned?



thanks, Tom.

    That is more that I would like to see in 2 months. However, not enough to be of great concern for the remainder of the season... As long as you plan on finding and repairing the leak as soon as you can shut down for the season.

    Not good but agree, you need to find the leak before next heating season.  I finally have a real crack in the casting and I'm getting 30 gallons in 30 days... counting down the days till NES comes to replace it.  You don't want to be me!

    Since you only have weeks left to winter it should be ok. But their could be other leaks as well. I would check it out good before the next heating season
