I have a grant eco external wall hung utility 15-21 boiler.

Customer Question
Hi I have a grant eco...
Hi
I have a grant eco external wall hung utility 15-21 boiler. I had run out of oil which I didn't realise until I checked. Furthermore, when I opened the boiler unit I saw there was an oily water puddle at the bottom of the casing. It is only 2 years old....do you know what this could be? Could it be because of the tank running out of oil?

Is bottom tank water waste condensation normal?
Plumber: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes its normal, accumulates with time but it can also rust out bottom if left to long, check date of manufacture on tank tag on top of it , replace if more than 20 Years old.
