    Fast Purge/Drain on boiler supply side?

    My house has odd near-boiler piping. Four return lines with 4 circulators go into 2 different boiler return tappings (one in the rear, one in the front). No central main return, so no single place to do a proper drain tee/main return isolation valve/water inlet feed string of fittings to do fast purging of any single or whole system air purging after doing any boiler work. Does anyone have advice on whether I could put that string of above 3 components on the single supply main (which I do have)?

    If doable. I was planning to loacte it just before the supply air elimination scoop/auto vent and the zone manifolding. The water makeup feed now is on one the return lines, before its circulator.

    Many thanks

    The complexity...

    Of what exists is difficult to "see." Any chance you could shoot us a digital photo or three?

    If you can, remember to reduce the pixel count to a mximum of 600 wide.

    We can help!
