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

Just sprang a leak on my HS Tarm excel 2200 a week ago.  Rewelded the brace joint and we're good for another hundred thousand.

My Canwood Boiler has now provided me with a small leak that doesn't want to be found but drains a few gallons each day. So it was installed sometime around 1998 and now its 2017. Does that make 19 years? Not bad I guess. I'll need a replacement for spring installation.

Wood master 4400 for ten years, year round..

I never put deep well water in it.. Too much iron..

I fill it from a shallow point well I have for my garage or I bail water out of the creek.

Good water = long lasting boiler.
Why buy it when you can build it.

I've had my CB E classic 2300 since 2008.  I've had endless recalls like many of you know. It sprung a leak several weeks ago and I was able to have it fix by my neighbor who is a talented welder.  It has since sprung another leak (which drained all 5 zones over night out the boiler) that appears less fixable.  Both leaks are where the bricks were before they were recalled to be removed. I spent a total of $20k for furnace, apex piping and installation; that would have bought a lot of oil!  I have called CB and sent them photos but I've not heard back as of yet.

I was a wood Doctor dealer for a couple of years. They had an issue with a robotic welder not completing a weld on the right upper corner of the door. Mine leaked after 6 years . Welded the door and had no more issues . Replaced 1 blower.

I have a 1995 Central Boiler CL 40. Other than replacing the rope gasket on the door and in need of a new chimney,mine has been fault free and leak free which now has me scared. This is the only heat source that I have for my house. Only paid $4500 back when I bought it so it owes me nothing.

We're on year 4 of our Heatmaster, our previous Wood doctor started to leak after 12 years & totally rotted out after year 14. Hopefully the stainless will last longer, if it doesn't we'll seriously look at European technology wood/wood pellet combos.

Those of you who have had leaks, did you put corrosion inhibitor in the water?
