: Hi Heatpro, So if I leave the fill valve on and open the pressure relief valve the system will not get any air in it in anyway then right?
+++ That's right AS LONG AS THERE IS NO LEAK. But, then, if you get one in the wall or a place you can't see it , then you WILL get sediment and oxygen corrosion from constantly filling the system to make up for the leak.
Also where the fill valve is, there is a regulator for the fresh water into boiler. Should I open that lever on that regulator to during the summer make sure for anykind of sediment build up there to?
+++ If you did not have a leak, then no sediment would build up there. Pressure reducing valves that build up sediment are proof that there was a severe leak for a long time.
Or do I not have to worry about that one?
+++ If you don't want to worry, do as the article referred to says - install a low water cutoff and follow the manufacturer's instructions to KEEP THE BOILER FEED VALVE SHUT!
I have county city water going to boiler, thought I would let you know just for reference.
