: What Mike has said is absolutely correct.
: You are steam blanketing your off line boiler.
: Unless you run the boiler periodically, you will have too blow it down.
: Firing it occasinally is a good practice, just to verify that it functions correctly,whereas blowing it down to lower the water level is just dumping money down the drain.
: Another thing which should be considered is the ASME requirements for non-return valves for more than 1 boiler on a common header.
: A simple way to stop this problem you are having, is to shut the boiler steam stop.
