Hi to all, I have a steam heat boiler on a house I just bought. We installed new pipes and I would like to do a boiler flush, to get rid of all the sediments that the boiler may have. I 've seen the boiler flush bottle in a plumbing store, and was wondering how or where do you pour this stuff into the boiler? Thanks to all!!!
The answer to your question could be a tough one, taking a wild guess here. You should have a condensate return tank with a pump, that is going to be the safest place to put it in. If yours pipes straight back top the boiler or is a gravity return system, you could have a boiler treatment canister on boiler, put cleaner in at this point. If you dont have either some boilers came with service plugs in the top of them, you could put it in there. Two things to remember when using a flushing chemical, make sure you mix it to the proper ratio with water, and make sure it is compatible with current boiler treatment being used. Remember high school chemistry, what happens when you mix acids and bases ( bases otherwise known as caustics).
