Many pipes, especially near the boiler, are very corroded on the outside, if that's any indication. I havent drained any water out yet.
Corrosion on the outside is no indication of what is on the inside unless they are leaking. Most outside corrosion is due to dampness in the air. A quick change from cool weather to hotter, humid weather can cause them to sweat.
See attached photo.
I hadn't even had a chance to fire it after refurb and the rust came through immediately.
it was new piping also.
