my boiler is making a gurgling rush sound when we turn up the heat and it hasnt been heating up as fast, I opened the front of the boiler and i noticed the psi were only about 8 when it kicked on. is my pump bad? I have a Burnham hydronic system with a grundfos pump and a indirect tank.
HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:what type of boiler is thisThank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.
your boiler is low on water rais the psi to at least 12 to 18 psi and blead the zones and then the noise will be gone
it has a guard dog low water cut off
your not low on water the boiler could be full and be low on pressure
you have no pressure you have raise the pressure with the fast fill
the fast fill? I have 5 gallons of (no burst) should i use that or water? do i take a garden hose and stick it in a bucket of water and open the valves so it will draw in the lines?
if you know how to add " no Burst " then yes you will have to replenish your anti freeze but the psi must be rasied
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX sure if thats how or not? how do i raise the psi?
there is a valve going to the boiler from the water heater aera there is a device its eather
green or brass with a tab at the top or its a brass loking ufo with a rocker to be lifted
as you add the water loook at the guage and stop at 12 to 18 psi
ok I looked all over its a bradford-white indirect tank and i see no such valve? would it run under the house or no?
no there is a 1/2 copper line going to your boiler ( it goes from the boiler to the domestic water supply ) it fills your boiler there should be a valve before it then a device used to fill and maintain the system psi

there is a 1/2 from the tank to back of boiler but it runs under the boiler to crawlspace so i dunno im sure that is it or I will find it. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
