I have a one pipe steam system. I am on the first floor of a 4 story house (3 other owners - one per floor). My
3 radiators have a good slant back to the pipe. I have lowered the pressure to .5 ( There are two gauges for pressure
and I have not touched the second one, is that where I set the high psi? It should be just below 2psi right?).
I have blown down the sediment and yet I am still getting water in my radiators...too much to the point it fills the
air vents. My water level is automatic on the boiler and it runs at about 3/4 when on in the tube. I presume there
is no way to control how much water fills the boiler. The only thing left to do I imagine is SKIMMING. How exactly can I do
this without disrupting the building's heating. Is it a long process? what tools will I need? where do I skim from?
