boiler troubleshooting


thank you for your advice. This is a low pressure system and the pressure relief valve I installed pops at 30psi. I will however be very careful before I do anyting with the gasline in the future.

I got ten bucks Jersey Shore guy ain't got a proper license for the system he is working on.


i know a lot of building owners who appoint some low paid person and send them to a two week school on hydronics and then expect them work on everything from hot water to big steam.

boiler troubleshooting


yes! this describes me to a Tee. I am Universal certified in the transition and recovery of refrigerants and at some point in my career I was 2pound gasline certified from Virginia natural gas. I worked in the HVAC field for about 2 years after taking a class through the community college, but this was back in 1996. Now I am the maintenance manager for the corporate headquarters at an International Manufacturing Facility. My duties include Landscaping, Sanitation (garbage), Equipment maintenance, Forklift maintenance and repairs, Building maintenance and repairs to include roofing, plumbing, HVAC, Electrician, and when things are slow in my dept. I also participate in production. This is quite a load for me. I also have 2 other employees whom I am responsible for keeping busy cleaning bathrooms, offices and the warehouse. I do all of this for $40,000 a year + bonus if I can stay within my budget.

Dude you are seriously underpaid and over worked (typical for a "Right To Work" state).. My entry level tech(first year) makes that much on 40 hours.

With those credentials why are you coming to a DIY site?
A Pro site would be more appropriate. You just have to make clear you are joining to expand your your skill set. Even us 30 year veterans get stuck and need a place to go for some additional input.

By seeking info at a DIY site you lose credibility. That's why the webmaster put up the pro only site.
