Does anyone know of an inexpensive way to get ahold of cast iron radiators in Chicagoland?
I recently renovated a kitchen, removed a radiator, and installed two baseboard (fin-tube style) radiators, just to find out that they are not really ideal for use with my gravity-feed type boiler. First of all, since I am among experts, can anyone confirm this? My boiler system is OLD and has no pump, so I don't think the fin tubes work well in this set-up. I've been bleeding air and adding water for 2 weeks and I can't get hot water to flow through the fin-tube.
So, I went to a location at Grand and Central where they charge $17 per section - that means for a 3 footer and a 5 footer (a total of around 32 sections) I'm looking at $500!!!
The worst part is I scrapped my old radiator - no idea of the market for these things...
