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.

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.https://www.nachi.org/forum/data:imag...rRdzKV76o//9k=

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
