I find that I have to regularly add water to my hot water heating loop. Here is the system:
Gas fired steam boiler with a hot water boiler mate (aka...sidecar, boiler mate, heat exchanger, etc.. ) The industrious previous owner of the house installed a traditional hot water heater and re piped the boilermate to provide supply for a hot water loop in the basement of the house. System is piped as follows:
1. Circ pump
The only other features after the last T connect is the pipe loop and baseboard units. The loop then completes back to circ pump.
Fairly regularly (once per week) I notice no heat in loop. I check the water level in main boiler to make sure it is high enough to fill boiler mate. Then add water to hot water loop system, typically until psi = 15. There are no signs of any leaks and I have been adding water like this for 3 heating seasons. Where does the water go? After reading other posts on your site I am curious if the expansion tank needs some type of adjustment? Is there other service that this loop should have? Thank you for any help you can provide.
