Is it true or not that the radiadors need to be sitting with one side higher then the other. If someone put in new flooring and set them level would that not cause something like this.
I assume most floors are level, on a one line system , the pipe is large enough so
the steam can enter on the top of the pipe and return water can flow back at the bottom of the pipe. On two line system the steam pushes the water out the other end. I suppose it would not hurt to raise one end or the other a little but it should work without doing this.
As far as this mans leaks, it would have to be one of a few things.
Cracked casting, Push nipple's leaking, air bleeders bad, pipes interring the rad.
leaking , or balance valves going to the rad. leaking. This man needs to pinpoint the leaks and tell us whats going on or we can't help him.
