    Hot water loop off steam boiler

    I have a Utica steam boiler and I need to create a new zone of heat for addition. The boiler return side I can remove a plug and create tapping for supply of hot water loop supply. On the other side of the boiler the steam connection is above the water line, I'm left with a gauge glass tapping or a 2/1/2 inch plug on the bottom of the boiler lower then the boiler drain filled with muck. What are my options for making this zone of heat work? If I take it from gauge glass and install a t I'm not sure if it would work. If I install on the bottom of boiler I'm afraid of mucking up the pumps and having to change them often. Please give me some input. Thank you very much

    Take some pics...

    I do this different depending on whats there, I just did one, I pulled off of the drain {installed a tee where the drain was} and into the return pipe {cut the pipe coming out of the boiler install a tee}... I have seen them all different ways including the glass gauge ports, but not the best idea... I have even seen them piped back in the pop safety.... not rite..
