Subject: Vacuam Breaker Location
Just installed the new vacuum breaker to prevent vapor lock on my Isomac
Tea. My boiler pressure does not go up now it stays on zero.

I installed it on the elbow below the pressure stat where the brass valve
with a small silver pin was.

There is another valve on the boiler in a plastic black cup with a drain
tube.

Did i install the vacuum breaker in the correct location ?

Thanks, WS

Yep that's the one, problem fixed ...turned out i had it connected
right the first time. Just hand't let the machine warm up enough. The old
vacuam breaker was holding air in the boiler so the machine heated up faster
so with the new breaker it heats up as normal.
