    Hi Chris,

    I’ve been reading about Porta’s water treatment, and to adds more additives to the boiler water to arrive at a mixture which is benign from a corrosion point of view. However it occurred to me that the boiling point of this mixture would be higher than for pure water, even though the steam produced would be pure and the saturation temperature equivalent to that produced by boiling pure water. I was wondering if there was any evidence that this increased boiling point reduced boiler efficiency, heat transfer or output.
