Alan, this brings up yet another question from a dummy: Does regular cooling, then refiring to operating temp weaken boilers more quickly than holding the fire for a very extended period? I realize the modern chemical additives and (at least) every watch water tests keep the scale, etc. to a minimum. So, which is better -- cooling and manually cleaning the boilers every week, or using clean, treated water and keeping them fired for weeks or more, and keeping the whole package at temp?
