Clean-Out Lever, once a day? Really?

In the EFM manual it states that the cleanout lever must be opened EVERY day!

Is this true? :shock:

hehe sort of. I'm doing research on auger fed boilers. Once our addition is put on, the utlity room will be large enough to house an auger fed boiler! :D

I haven't ruled out the AA-130, but I'm trying to get all the good and the bad from each before I make my decision.

I pull mine every day. It feels good so I do it. I pull the cleanout lever every day too.
