: I started to fill it, but I really have no idea what the capacity is, and after having the water on for a bit, stopped, since I'm worried about damaging the thing...
+++ very good idea. If the heat exchanger was red hot from no water cooling it - you might have been in pieces outside the building in an instant. NEVER add water to a clanging boiler with no water showing.
how much water can I expect to put in there?
+++ before, very little. NOW? unknown, you might never fill it again.
Why would my level have dropped so much so quickly? Crack in my system somewhere?
Time for an inspection and maybe a new boiler. Keep it off until somebody knowing comes in.
