STill fighting with that one boiler. Ran some Rhomar cleaner and it really worked loose alot of junk. Running some more right now and then several flushings, inluding the condensate pump. What the name of the fluxes and solders you are using?

    Just got it, BP

    We generally use either Sterling or 95/5 solder and Nokorode flux. We haven't had a stubborn case like you're dealing with right now, I'll bet there was more dirt in that system than the flux.

    One thing we like to do on a steam boiler replacement is flush all the returns (if we don't replace them). That always dislodges lots of gunk. But if I recall, you did that on this job, right?

    There was about 15 ft left ...

    of wet return.. the rest new copper. I'm begining to think it ws mainly chemicals in the system. However, I had two others with the same problem this year. Is no korode water soluble? I thought you were using water soluble flux.

    Can you E-mail your phone number and a good time to get a hold of you. I want to ask you about a couple things and discuss this further.
