I'm a homeowner and have VERY limited knowledge of boiler systems. My boiler is not keeping it's PSI high enough. There's no leak anywhere. It keeps dropping to 2.5. The city water won't keep the systems psi up. My friend, a boiler installer, has me hooking up the hose to give it make-up. I get the pressure up to 17, but it drops to 2.5 within 12 hours. It knows gives off a tea kettle pitch. This boiler was originally an oil unit, but has been changed to gas. I'm just throwing out info at this point. My house is cape cod w/ two rooms upstairs. I have to bleed air out up there periodically. Could it be the pump? I'm starting to feel that I need to replace this old boiler or put in a furnace with central air. This has ruined my family's Xmas. We were going to travel this morning but I thought we needed to stay and watch this system. Any thoughts?
