I've got a 20 year old peerless oil-fired fired steam boiler that needs to be refilled almost twice a day. After reading through the past posts, I've seen boiler solder mentioned a few times. Does this stuff work? How do I go about introducing it to my water? And, if it does work, why is my oil company trying to sell me a new burner?
According to the oil company technician that came and checked the burner, the crack is towards the top of the burner and that steam is probably coming out of the chimney outside the house. I'd like to take the green metal top off the boiler, run it and see if I can see this leak firsthand. Is the green metal outer cover cosmetic or is it unsafe to run the burner with the cover off?
