@ January 24, 2007 8:08 PM in Gym floor covering with radiant heatDoes anyone have any experience choosing a flooring material to cover a concrete slab with in-floor heat? More specifically I'm looking for some type of sports floor. And even more specifically for indoor basketball. I don't want to kill the heat. But I'm trying to replicate a nice gym floor at a reasonable price.

@ January 22, 2007 10:18 AM in Best steam trap testing equipment?Actually my first post is "testing steam traps" but I meant to post a more specific heading. So this is it. I'm looking at investing in a good ultrasonic steam trap tester. Any suggestions on what type, model, where to purchase, etc? Also I'm what the experts think about this method of testing. Thank You

@ January 8, 2007 12:55 PM in false water lineI'm trying to find a good drawing of a false water line for a steam system. I do have the one out of Lost Art. It isn't the clearest drawing in the world. That plus I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed. If anyone has a better one I'd love to see it. Thanks

@ January 6, 2007 6:56 PM in Spirovent spitting and not liking it!We installed the boiler, 1 1/4" Spirovent air eliminator, etc. in 1999. Anyone know what would make it leak now? Can it be repaired?
@ January 6, 2007 10:21 AM in Trap Repairswhat about opening the outlet side of a few at a time, putting a bucket under them and firing the boiler for a few minutes?
@ January 5, 2007 10:10 PM in Trap RepairsWe're adding trv's to rads in a high rise in Detroit. They also want the traps repaired where needed. Unfortunatley they wo'nt change therm all at once. Any tips on the best way to check them.
@ December 19, 2006 10:31 AM in vacuum system and trapsDo certain traps on the mains and the radiators work better then others on a vacuum system? Do certain types not work at all? Thanks
@ December 10, 2006 8:49 AM in Where do I dump the condensate for a 90% boiler with no drain?I recently built a unattached garage with in-floor heat. I did not put in a drain. I would like to put in a high efficency boiler such as a Triangle Tube or a Lochinvar Knight. Does anyone know how much condensate will be produced on a very cold day in Michigan?
