    Fire the boiler up. It makes no difference what calls the burner. There is no tester made that will pinpoint the leak. The boiler already has a pressure gauge on it.

    Replace the indirect. The pressure won't go much higher in the boiler because you have a very small leak in the indirect coil and the relief valve is leaking it off.

    Thanks Guys,
    New Indirect Installed. Smaller Unit with same volume, Much more efficient. Boiler pressure remaining at 12PSI. Now to completely empty old one to get to supplier for refund.
    Again thank you all for your help!
