Boiler Question
2 Attachment(s)
This is a Sears boiler (not that it matters with this question). The boiler has a manufacturers line labeled "water line" and the water level is below that. So this may be a stupid question but does that "water line" mean thats where the water line should be? Because obviously its not.

Re: Boiler Question
Nice and thank you. The system was running during the inspection so it looks like that may be the reason for the drop.

When I return for the radon test I will be looking. I did note there was a programmable water feeder.

Re: Boiler Question
right that is the level it should be at, also by the looks of the water in the sight tube no one is flushing once a week
