Or I hope so. A guy who is settling on a house in the city that being Baltimore called and wants the gas boiler looked at says it does not work and wants to know if it can be fixed or if it should be replaced? So my work experience with boilers is limited to troubleshooting the plumbing controls replacing them , replacing circulators , and replacing boilers the whole thing. I have troubleshooted gas water heaters and I am told it is very similar to that and have been trying to read up on boiler controls. I talked to the "boiler guy" at ferguson's today and he gave me a run down on the sequence of operation so I can go down the line to test to see what works. However I asked him about buying a manometer from them to test gas pressure before and after the gas valve and was told the pressure should be the same. I also found out that Honeywell makes a universal Gas valve , control board and pilot kit and also asked him is it worth it to install these and he thinks it would be a waste for homeowners. Do any of you retro fit old boilers with these kits he also tells me that 25yrs is a good age for a boiler to be replaced. I guess the controls are too much? Or will the cast Iron sections give out ? what say the forum guys!
No announcement yet.
Finally got a good call!!
