Question
saito b2f feed water pump

Has anyone put a feed pump on a saito boiler? Would pumping water into the port for the pressure gauge work?
Thanks,
matt

The Saito boilers have no water gauge. If you add a pump, you won't know the water level. I have added a water gauge to my Saito boiler, which involved silver soldering one extra bushing near the burner.
That being said, a pump connection could be added just about anywhere. A good place is the water level bushing above the burner.

Yes I'll post pictures when I get back in town this weekend. No there isn't a pressure gauge port. The port your talking about is to be removed when you fill the boiler so you know when to stop filling it.

I was talking about the tee turret thing where the second safety valve is.
I was wondering if I could put some sort of a automatic bypass valve, to keep just enough water in the boiler, would this work?
