I have a very old Weil McLain D Series 5-S-22 'Snowman' that was converted from oil to gas in the 70's. I also have a separate Hot Water Tank. On the right hand side I have what appears to be a 1 Gallon Milk jug size evaporator or something with some disconnected pipes coming out of it. The piping is like a reverse C, it goes into the boiler at the bottom and the newer copper water feed where I fill the boiler with water is going in there; then it runs up through this milk jug tank and then turns back into the boiler at the top. This piping has been drip leaking since April or May near the bottom of the C where it connects into the boiler. It is highly corroded and there is a BUILDUP of rust/white colored junk along the knuckles of the fittings.
My questions are can this affect my boiler from running properly? Can it be repaired or do I have to replace it? and considering the amount of corrosion is this going to be even feasible or am I up crap creek without a paddle?
Need heat soon pls advise =).
