It can be very dangerous to try and turn on a furnace, hot water heater, or boiler that has been partially flooded. It is recommended that you call in a competent heating contractor or plumber. If we can be of any assistance please call us @ 732-244-4435 or visit our website @ www.artisanplumbingcorp.com. Below I have included a post from the US Boiler Company. Please be very careful.
