In Reply to: Leaking Condensate Pipes - Can I Switch Those Radiators To Single Pipe System? posted by Ed on November 22, 2005 at 10:20:29:
Dont do it man it wont work. Cant just turn 2 pipe into 1 pipe its not that easy. 1 pipe has 2 b pitched very carefully 2 let steam go up and condensate go back. If not just rite then steam bogs up or slugs the condensate and u get bigtime water hammer and no heat. Do like Heatpro says and just replace ur leaky pipe, no headache LOLOL
: I have two radiators that use the same condensate pipe that is leaking. I fixed the leak by turning off the radiators. The cost to fix the leaking pipes would is worth two radiators turned off. However, it just I just had an idea seeing that some steam systems only have one pipe. Could I disconnect the condensate side of these two radiators and have just the single pipe from the steam side allow condesate to run down it? What other changes would I need to make to the radiators? Would I need to install and valves or anything?
