I know Thor started a thread on draining his water heater but I need some help. Don't wanna burn myself or screw myself with no heat with the winter here in NYC. I bought this house only a few months ago and the owner didn't say anything or left manual for the boiler. It's a Weil McLain EG-40 or EG-45 gas boiler. I downloaded the manual from their site but it's more meant for a plumper that'll understands it.
There is a low water cut off relay. Is the valve below my drain hole?
I think this water gauge is the water level for the boiler. The water is clear now but when it's running, I can see some brown residues in it. Anyone know what are the top and bottom knots are for? And what is that big pipe for?
OK, I think the PSI gauge is my stream pressure but what is that open valve at the top.. the stream release valve?
I guess this controls the stream release?
I am assuming this is where the water is feeding the boiler
