Re: Boiler problem at Grandma's house

In my case, about a year ago I found water under and around my boiler...turned out to be a clogged filter which is located near where the oil comes out of the fuel tank in my basement.......oil tank very old and sludge has formed in bottom of tank....

I was told that the the boiler would turn on but get choked due to clogged filter and shut itself off and that the water was from some sort of expansion taken place from boiler shutting down.

New filter element installed solved the problem.
