Are there any special ways to clean all new steam piping in a basement? I had to run all new steam mains and runouts, and cleaned the boiler with TSP like I always do, I'm wondering if I should overfill the boiler to the with the TSP solution and fill the mains?
When I was building my new header I cleaned the insides of the new pipes with these GOJO cleaning wipes I got to keep my hands and tools clean. They have a grease-cutting cleaner and a textured surface for scrubbing. I think Blue Monster has a similar product. Old rags and turpentine would probably work just as well, if not better.
