Home Owner: If you
need specific or better pictures please let me
know. Thanks again.
pictures show 2 Taco 007 circulator pumps, above
those two ball valves with yellow handles and
above that 2 different type of boiler drains. To
purge the air out Turn the yellow handle valve
off, connect a hose to the boiler drain above
the yellow handle valve. Run hose to a 5 gallon
bucket, placed where the bucket can overflow
without causing a flood. Open the boiler drain
partly so that the water flows but be sure the
boiler pressure does not go below 5 PSI when
see very few air bubbles coming out of the hose
at the bottom of the bucket, you are done.
Home Owner: Thanks!
I am going to jump on this right away.
Home Owner: Nothing
was coming out of the hose, so I disconnected
it. I placed the bucket right at the drain and
the picture shows how the water is coming out.
Did I miss something or is the pipe still frozen
Answer: What is the
boiler pressure? if it is showing above 5 PSI,
yes the line is still frozen, but if that water
flow coming out of the boiler drain is steady,
water is getting past the ice and will cause it
to melt, but if it stops you have a total freeze
