Long down time

Post by SteveOom » Mon Dec 25, 2017 9:14 am

My outdoor boiler has been inactive for several years now.
We have been traveling for work. Next week we will be coming home and I will be starting the boiler up again.

As far as I can remember, when I shut it down the last time, all I did was drain the tank and lines and closed everything up. At the time, my plan was to start it the next season but life just got in the way and now its been sitting for two years.

What should I do or look out for when I start it next week? Looking for any and all advice.

I would make sure that mice haven't got into the wiring and make sure the pump or pumps are not frozen up then fill it up and let it circulate a bit then build a fire.
