I am doing some remodeling work at my house and I want to move the
burner and boiler to a new location. What needs to be done in order to
drain all the water out of the system. i noticed there are some valves
located on the bottom of the boiler. Do these valves drain all the
water in the system? Is there a sequence that needs to be done? Any
info that anyone can provide would be great, if not I will be flying by
the seat of my pants. Just making it up as I go along. Thanks, Jim

how old is it? might be better to install a new high efficency unit?
how does your present one vent?

Is the heating system above or below the boiler?
The heater is only 5 yrs old. I can solder the joints myself, just not
really sure how to drain all the pipes. And how do you know that the
pipes, and boiler is empty? That is my only stumbling block. On the
bottom of the boiler there is a connection to hook up a hose to, and
also one on the pipes that connects to the baseboard. I was just going
to hook hoses up to these spigots and see what comes out. What do you

The boiler itself is slightly above the heating system. Any
