Radiator Boiler Problem


My boiler automatically shuts off when the water gets to low. At first it was happening every couple of days. Then it went to every Day. Now it last about 7 -10 hours before I have to fill it up. I checked the radiators no significant leaks that I can see. Any ideas?

<~~ not a plumber

could be your boiler fill valve. check the presure on the boiler, if its less than what your fill is set for, ( 12 pounds +/-) you might need to replace it. Most of them are put on with unions so its an easy swap.

Any Leaks are Very Significant....

Is this a Steam system, or Hotwater,..??

Radiator Boiler Problem


Checked the radiators again. There are two radiators that when i put my finger under the part where the radiator connects to the pipe going through the floor, there is moisture. About the equivalent of a drop or two of water. Is this enough to empty the system to the point it automatically shuts off?


This is a closed Steam System
