The first one was just under the chimney, this unit has been in operation for almost 10 years and has had a non insulated chimney on it for most of that time. If you look closely you can see the pitting caused by rainwater hitting the side of the smoke pipe and running down into the boiler, Please guys and gals, if you must use extra chimney then use insulated, it is wider and will not allow the water in from the outside!
The next pic is of what we had to remove due to ash and water being left In the boiler.
I sure am glad I have a plasma cutter!

Yep, with the proper tips I find I can go months at a time and never light the gas axe.
