Water is the lifeblood of a hydronic system. There are unseen forces of nature at work inside the system that have been going on as long as we have been installing system but they have not been a major problem until now. When we remove the old cast iron boiler and replace it with a low mass condensing boiler, the chemistry experiment that has been going on inside the system can have an adverse effect on not only the efficiency of the boiler but the life expectancy as well. In this proactive hands-on seminar, you will learn the effect of galvanic corrosion on the system components and what you can do about it. We will see actual samples of system water and how dissimilar metals react. We will also learn how we can test the water to find out exactly what the conditions are so we can treat them.
