Looking for really small condensate pump or ?

to each steam main drip that goes into the tank. Dry returns should not need traps if there are traps on the radiators. Never use just one master trap at the tank inlet, that will cause a lot of problems.

Is it possible to run a sewer machine thru the old returns and insert new copper pipe inside them?

    Condensate returns are gone !!

    Good morning,
    I have a old 2-pipe system with direct buried returns that have rotted out. Problem is that they cannot be excavated and there is not money to do a conversion to hot water. Has anyone used any really small condensate pumps that I could hide behind a wall to move condensate up 10' and over about 60'? I'm thinking that I can re-pipe the returns into a pump that will move it to another area that has solid return lines. Yes, I know, dig up the floors, that's not happening. It's either something like this or converting to electric heat because of avalable money and time. Thanks!

    is pretty much a standard. Not sure of a smaller one unless you can weld a piece of vertical pipe with a hardy base-mounted pump flange, float control, check valve and isolation valves for less money :) Maybe you could!
