: You have to allow enough room above the water line to let the water change to steam in the drum. If you can raise thew water without throwing it up into the main, then it is possible. Usually, a boiler can be cold-filled to 2/3 glass without a problem. Hopefully, the installers put the Hartford Loop at the right height and the gauge glass is indicating what the factory recommended so there needs be no change.
It's an ancient Kewanee Type R No. 1736. I would guess the Hartford Loop was installed at the right height, seems I checked. I'll look again.
The automatic water feeder, low water cut-off, pressuretrol, pressure guage and sight glass are of very recent vintage. It also seems to be well done but manufacturer installation instructions are long gone.
What would you suggest as the least amount of water depth over the top of the fire tubes?
