Raypak RP2100 leaks

wannadoitmyselfAugust 29, 2010

The bolts on the return head rotted and I replaced them with new stainless steel bolts and nuts. (This occured becuase Raypak used the wrong size gasket to seal the header onto the tube bundle).

I still see a small amount of condensation on the tube bundle which leads me to think the bundle itself needs to be replaced. It will cost me $600-$800 to replace this part and I am hesitant to invest so much into this heater. Is it OK to continue to run the heater with this small amount of leaking?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Is it a leak or condensation? Warm and humid air gets cooled by the water running through the heater when it isn't fired up. If it's just condensation, it will dry up after a minute when the heater is fired up.

A leak is a problem. Condensation is not.
