2008 building with a lot of buildup inside CPVC

Recommended Posts

2008 building with a lot of buildup inside CPVC pipe.

Mostly near the boiler for the circulating hot water system.

Is this lime? Have you guys come across this and what did you do?

Merry Christmas!

It looks like an overzealous application of boiler sealer. Were there any obvious past leaks?

Vortices are created at the joints and elbows where dissolved air is liberated which then reacts with the sealant.
