Pipe size

1-inch minimum for the runout, and I'd pitch it down and vent and drip the end. Run the drip back to a wet return. Going counterflow here may produce banging unless you could get some serious backward pitch!

    Pipe size for steam

    I'm looking at adding a 6 foot section of cast iron baseboard. The pipe run will be 24 feet. Is that to long for 3/4 pipe?
    Thank you

    It looks like I can get about a 4" drop in 20 feet. If I go with an 1-1/4 or 1-1/2 pipe and use a 3/4 riser up through the floor. Do you think that will work. Or will I just be making problems for myself.

  • is this for steam or hot water

    2 way street

    Can you construct a 2 way street just 12' wide?

    will traffic flow safely and smoothly both ways?
