I walked down into the basement last month, & I could not suppose why there was water pouring from the boiler.
I was afraid all this water would run my whole well dry, because it was coming out so quickly.
I called the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C company hotline & told them how water was coming from my boiler, & I needed their help. The Heating, Ventilation, & A/C pro told me that water shouldn’t be coming from the boiler, unless it was a steam boiler. He asked how my heat was distributed? I didn’t know. I just knew I heard the steam boiler running, & then my nice friend and I had heat. I paid for oil when I needed it for the steam boiler. If there wasn’t oil or electricity, I didn’t have heat. The Heating, Ventilation, & A/C pro told me he would be there shortly, however I should turn off the water. He had to talk me through turning the water off. I turned off the water valve, however he had me close the main valve, which meant I had no water anywhere in my house, & I wasn’t glad. I hoped the Heating pro would arrive soon. When he got there, he told me to call a plumber. The steam boiler was in nice condition, but the pipes needed replacing. I asked him what a steam boiler was, & why I didn’t have a boiler. He told me a steam boiler heated water, & the water flowed through pipes & the heat from the pipes sent heat into the house. I called my older sibling who was a plumber & told him I needed new water pipes for the steam boiler system. I didn’t understand anything he was saying about the steam boiler, however I understood needing a plumber.
