I went to put on the hot water boiler heat for the first time and got no heat from my gas-powered boiler (I have water baseboard heating). What I did get was water dripping from a pipe that is open on the bottom with a bell-shaped valve on top, and now there is water all over the floor. Do you have any troubleshooting tips for a non-home-savvy person?
Tom is correct but here’s some more. The relief valve water discharge can also result from a defective releif valve or a defective reducing valve.Whether one of these or a waterlogged expansion tank, the repair is a simple part replacement – not a major expense. Any suggestion that you need a new boiler because the relief valve leaks would be a reprehensible sales deception.
