A customer requested that the boiler in her basement be removed. She knew the system of drained of water because she previously removed the radiators. Now the customer wanted to update her air conditioning system and the old, unused boiler was in the way. The only way to remove this boiler was to break it up with a sledge hammer and then carry out the pieces. The metal was scrapped and the weight of the boiler and a few pipes was about 1,500 pounds!
