I once had a dealer tell me that he has never had one of the stoves he's sold ever leak. I'm sure this guy was a used car salesman in an earlier life.  :D :D :D

How many leak free years have you gotten from your current or old outdoor boiler?  My mild steel CB has now been in service for 15 years. I run it 365 days a year.

My boiler is inside the house. But it's been running non-stop (summers excluded) since 1957! So over 60 years! Never had a leak. I've replaced the controls twice and the pump motor coupling has been replaced at least twice but electric pump motor and pump are original. Oh, but it's a natural gas boiler!  :D
