By feed line PRV do you mean the line that feeds the boilers constantly with water? Or Auto boiler feed I think is what the plumber called it. Also by bleed a little water from the drain do you mean the drain on the coal boiler? If I do that wont the auto feed just fill it up again?
Its been hovering right around 20 give or take a little.... doesnt show any signs of dropping lately.
Sorry to ask some dumb questions.... I know some of you might roll your eyes at me (
) But plumbing was never my thing. I set the thing up myself and did all of the wiring myself but I cant even hook up a garden hose without it leaking. Im just trying to get an understanding of how these hot water systems work.
On the bright side of things its roaring away nicely.... beautiful fire and the oil man thinks I switched suppliers!
