Counter Flow

SBostonSBoston Posts: 61Member

I took down the rest of the sheetrock ceiling in my basement. having a much better view of my mains i just now realized that I have a single pipe, counterflow system with dry/wet returns on each riser? Is this possible? At first it looked like all the mains were angled away from the returns, but now that i can see the whole picture, the mains are angled back toward the boiler while all the risers have returns tided to the bottom.</span>

    Counter flow.

    I don't see too many counter flow systems, but typically they use one pipe radiators, and don't need a drip riser. Are you having any problems with the system?

    I know we would all love to see some pictures if you're able.

    Yes- Please take some pictures. It sounds interesting!
