: How long would you give a low pressure sectional weil mclain steam boiler to live under the following circumstances. No chemical treatment, no softening, cold city water going straight to the unit,high mineral city water,appears to never been blown down.
In short this all depends on your city water quality and the amount of makeup water added on a baseline setting, ie: cycle, hourly, daily, etc:.
If your water quality is hard you can assume that the life is decreased enormously.
If the unit is blowndown regularly and cleaned bi-yearly you can increase this time though.
