  • She's showing her age ...

    I have a Weil Mclain P-466ewt series 3 born on date 11-07-78 boiler on a forced hot water slant finn heating system in my home. The company that use to clean the boiler bitched so much about servicing the boiler I started to do it myself granted they are a pain to clean and takes me a couple hours to do the dirty task. I do use the same plumbing company to come in and fine tune her with there combustion test gear . she does run on the lean side .65 80 A nozzle her efficiency has gone up after I started soot removal. 80.2 % now

    It's a no brainer that I need a new boiler my question is in your opinion who manufactures the best to clean boiler? The new Weil Mclain's gold series ( in which would be an easy swap out) should not make the list according to my plumber any thoughts ?

    Buderus, with a swing out door, for fuel oil use.

    For gas, go with a high efficiency Navien boiler.

    ... it was plumbed by Ray Charles and his helper Stevie Wonder
