Urgent First Steps:
1. Confirm your boiler is registered with us. This will ensure your warranty coverage continues in your name, and allow us to help you better. Click here for OutdoorBoiler.com "Contact Us" info.
2. Completely FLUSH your boiler water every four years - read why and how here in this article "When a Complete Flush is Urgently Needed".
3. Use ONLY Liquid Armor water treatment, and submit a water sample to our lab for free water testing and analysis. Click here for info on why and how in this short article "This Year 100s of Outdoor Boilers Will Die from Stubbornness".
Also, all the water treatment info you will ever need is available from a link in the top right corner of our home page at OutdoorBoiler.com, HERE.
4. Confirm your chimney extension (if you have one) is properly insulated - a good extension will EXTEND the life of your outdoor wood burner and we all love having them on our boilers, but the wrong type of chimney will kill your boiler in 6 months. Read why here in 30 seconds.
5. Confirm that you have a Filter Kit installed. 98% of our customers have them, but those who do not call us in 3-5 years to buy new pumps and heat exchangers - which is VERY expensive. Read why the Filter Kit is essential here.
6. Replace your Filter O-rings every two years. If you don't, your o-rings get flat, your filter will leak, and you will be tempted to screw on the filter too hard and it will crack - also very expensive. Click here for O-rings and to read why they cause your filter to leak.
7. Replace your Filter Cartridge every five years. It might seem like it is working, but the 200m stainless steel has a limited life, and the seams wear out over time. Don't think your filter is protecting you from dangerous sediment damage if you have not replaced your cartridge in the last 5 years. Take 15 seconds to read about this secret weapon against sediment.
8. Replace your Door Seal fire rope with High Temp Caulk every two years. A leaky door seal will cause your boiler to high temp, causing possible fatigue damage to the steel, which is fatal for a boiler. Click here to read "Top 6 Ways You Save Money By Replacing Your Door Seal".
9. Remove the ash completely EVERY WEEK! Some good customers don't realize that deep layers of ash will absorb moisture, and become a caustic paste that will eat through your steel. Read "Fatal Mistake" here - a 30-second read.
10. Invest in Your Emergency Preparedness Kit. All outdoor boilers will outlast these four electronic components. Regardless of the age of your boiler, be a hero to your family and be prepared in case of a catastrophic component failure.
