automatic water feeder for steam

I have a steam boiler york m#66840ancme2. My problem is that I constantly have to fill it manually. I want to install a automatic water feeder so that I don't have to get up at night. I can do it myself since I have some plumbing experience and money is tight. The water line is 1/2 going to the hartford loop (I've been doing my research). My question what the easiest and cheapest way to go. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Your problem may not be having to get up in the middle of the night to add water. The real problem may be how often are you adding water? If you have to add water more than once a month, OK i'll streach it, twice a month where is the water going. If you keep adding a lot of water the boiler is heading for the boiler graveyard. That is unless it is already there. How often are you feeding water into the boiler? If money is already tight I hate to see you add an auto-feeder if you are going to need a boiler.
