I’ve been seeing alot of capped off draining cocks at and around boilers lately.
The only problem is… These caps are hiding leaks. Everytime I find signs of leakage at a boiler, I look for the source and low and behold… The faucet was leaking but is now capped with a copper cover.
Someone tell me the dangers of these caps. Should these be exposed at all times or is it not a big deal?
I’ve been telling my clients that these should be replaced because of signs of leakage. What’s the dangers?
