If your boiler has a small leak Water might not end up on the floor but go up the stack. In a firetube boiler this might just be from a crack at a tube end the can be repaired if it has not travelled to far. These can go into the tube sheet which is more expensive to repair. If your boiler is a cast iron sectional you could have a section ready to come apart. These are just a couple of things I have seen. there are others but I would have to look at your sytem to determine what is really happening.
: : : I was in a high school boiler room recently. The operator told me his condensate tank keeps running low and as a result his boilers have shut down automatically. What would the causes be to have such a loss of make up water? Curious!!!
: : : Best regards Leo!!!
: : There are a lot of things that could cause this from leaking pipes, a leaking boiler, to an undersized condensate tank. If this is happening on a regular basis they should have a reputable boiler service company in the area have a look at the system and find out what the problem is. It could be an indicator of more serious problems to come.
: Steve in your reply to my condensate tank question you said this could be an indicator of more serious problems to come. Could you elaborate? Thanks Leo
