I'm gonna take a break for now! I'll let the cleaner work for a while and see what happens! I think it's mineral deposits or some trapped air that maybe is turning to steam(?)! The noise...

Looks like I got a good deal (screwing) all around when I picked that company!

Wasn't my idea! I questioned the size of boiler before it was installed! And they said "nope this is what it calls for"! I shouldn't have allowed it! 4 guys were afraid to take it down the basement...

Thanks, Grady!
The boiler is a WM WTGO 5, Series 3 oil fired. I know the boiler is oversized as my house is only 1400 sq. feet! The "monster" is 10 yrs. old! We have hard water, and I have to flush...

Ok, I got a good take on the problem! It does appear to be the boiler kettling! Now what? As I mentioned, I did pit in a bottle of boiler cleaner, but that didn't seem to do anything!

Thank you Spott!

Never have looked in the book, but I figure any air in the boiler would just come out in the heating loop anyway! Maybe that's good if or when you drain the boiler to vent the air out when you refill...

"The air is actually in the bladder just like a bicycle tire tube."

I'm isolating the air scoop by closing the valve by the flow valve and the one right at the top of the boiler jacket (hard to see in lopsided pic) and turning off the water feed valve! So, actually...
