Severe corrosion of water line at boiler connection.

Here you can see the pipe which has corroded. This water line was actually leaking when we arrive at the restaurant. The boiler room actually had multiple leaks which were fixed along with new ball valves for proper shut downs.

Shut offs are vital in the maintenance and repair aspect of working in a boiler room. We also found sewer gas coming from a floor drain in the boiler room. This was caused by the lack of a trap primer. Trap primers are designed to purge water during line pressure fluctuation of 5-10psi. Thus keeping the trap from drying up and allowing sanitary sewer gas into the building.

We currently have estimates to replace the boiler itself. The exterior of the boiler shows signs of rust and corrosion as well.
