Steam Boiler Pipe Repair

Steam Boiler Pipe Repair

Boiler Pipe Repair was a must for this job. The new homeowners purchased this home unaware that the previous homeowner and his friends took a crack at installing a steam boiler. Needless to say, they failed miserably.

I was a little shocked that the home inspector didn’t pick up on the steam boiler pipe repair that was done, but then again I don’t think home inspectors are trained in proper steam boiler installation. This is my follow up to a video I posted a few weeks ago titled "Bad Plumbing".

I cleaned up some p.e.x. tubing that was installed in this same home, and in this video I correct all the screwed up mistakes by the previous homeowner and make a proper Steam Boiler Pipe Repair so the new homeowner can enjoy a noise-free, quiet steam heating system.

Regards & Happy Plumbing
