Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. I am curious why the engineer did not clear the condensate drain?
You are very welcome. There should be a condensate drain on the vent pipe. It may even be a small, clear tube connected to a barb at the base of the vent where it connects to the boiler. There is a track in the inside rim where the condensate collects and drains out of the tubing. Look for the barb and clear it so the condensate can drain out and connect some tubing to it. Leave it coiled next to the boiler to act as a trap. The coil will stay full of water and keep bugs and dust out.
