@ June 30, 2002 7:40 AM in And now, back to Steam Heat - S. Milnegot two! You've got to come and visit someday.
@ June 29, 2002 9:08 AM in And now, back to Steam Heat - S. Milneto put a feed pump in a house. I think that if the pipes are well insulated and the traps are working and the returns are clear then the return trap can get the job done. If it's working, that is. If it's not, there's another alternative. "Jammer Don" Conyngham of Eastern Penn Supply has his contractors rip the guts out of the receiver and keep the casting. Then he has them install a probe-type low-water cutoff in the receiver. This is wired to a switching relay, which is wired to two small solenoid valves - one in the steam line (normally closed) to the receiver and the other to the equalizing line (normally open) that goes back to the dry return. It works like a charm, and for a lot less money than a feed pump and the extra traps that you need once you add the feed pump. You can't go wrong with a feed pump, of course. It's just that I don't think it's always necessary, especially in a house. Just another guy's opinon.
@ June 28, 2002 7:32 PM in Week-old Wall - Dan H.me a while to get used to it too. I was playing with it for a few weeks before it went up and we got most of the bugs out. It does take some getting used to consider how long we had the old one. I'm glad to be rid of that five-minute delay to post, though. Thanks, Cheese.
@ June 28, 2002 4:54 PM in Steam Radiators-Hugh McTernanThere's a book in the Books & More section that can help. It's called E.D.R. There's also an article in the Hot Tech Topics area that gives tips on converting from steam to hot water. You can also get some very good advice here if you'd like to keep the steam.
@ June 28, 2002 4:05 PM in Week-old Wall - Dan H.Hope you all getting used to (and enjoying!) the new software. Thanks for being such an important part of HeatingHelp.com. And thanks for being so patient with us as we try our best to serve you better.
@ June 28, 2002 3:28 PM in What is the advantage of cross-over - Bigis that the supply water temperature to any of the secondary circuits can be the same. With one-pipe p-s the water cools as it returns from each circuit, lowering the supply temperature to the next circuit. Two-pipe solves that problem and it's the reason why you'll see it on big jobs. I have diagrams of this in my book, Primary-Secondary Pumping Made Easy. I also explain how to size all the pipe for this system, as well as the one-pipe systems (with and without manifolds). You can get a copy in Books & More if you'd like.
