I do hope someone can help, as I am in quite a pickle.
My boiler is only ~10 years old, but from the first day I turned on the heat four years ago the water gage has required refilling nearly every day/every other day. I only keep the temp at 60 degrees, 62 for company and so don't go crazy with using oil.
Everyone says this is unusual, so each time the oil company came for the annual inspection I posed the question. Never an answer except it shouldn't be.
Last December the pilot wouldn't light and I called for service. Guy installed a new starter and said the water problem should be eliminated. It wasn't.
Got home from a week away and learned that the water gage doesn't even fill up anymore; thus I am without heat. I need help with this, because the oil company won't relent (I owe a couple of hundred dollars from December as the oil bill was high plus the repair was $400). Doesn't matter that I paid them $600 this month - this is simply cruel.
So I am now very sick, but will do whatever I need to if someone can dummy down the explanation. My housemate and cats will thank you too.
