Disposal of aqueous condensate from high efficiency gas boilers

Journal Article:

Abstract

If highly efficient gas-fired condensing heating appliances are installed in Britain, the aqueous condensate produced can be conveniently run into existing sewage drains. The part of the drainage system that is most vulnerable to corrosion from the mildly acid condensate is that portion adjacent to the domestic premises. The tests described indicate that this is not at risk and the only precaution that might be considered necessary is to avoid running the condensate over galvanized drain covers in order to prevent unsightly staining. Water authorities in Britain and detailed studies in the US and Holland confirm that the condensate - after dilution by domestic waste, sewage, and rainwater - would be harmless to municipal sewage systems and would not, either in volume or chemical composition, affect the working of existing sewage treatment plants.
