Condensation in boiler pressure gauge

Postby JeffBlouin on Thu Jan 12, 2012 6:33 pm

Hello,

I have a new problem with my Anita, there is alot of condensation forming in the boiler pressure gauge.
Is there anything I can do about that. And is it affecting the pressure or anything else in the process?

Thanks again for your help!

The gauge could be going south or the capillary tube connecting it has a small leak. If the gauge is leaking inside it will steam up the glass. eventually is will go bad, if it is the capillary tube it may just need a little tightening.
