Unique radiator (pic included) and proper pitch assistance needed
Hey guys. My landlord had a plumber replace the ridiculously small, steam, one-pipe radiators under the 2 windows in my apartment yesterday. The replacement radiators that he brought are much larger and I'm sure will heat the space better, but they have connections on the inside instead of on the outside however.
As a result, it seems physically impossible to pitch the radiator toward the inlet pipe and not have the last few inches of the straight pipe pitch upward instead of downward. In fact, I can't think of a setup where this type of inside connector would ever work.
Will the condensation drain properly? Should I:
1. Leave it pitched as is despite the very slight upward slope where the pipe connects?
2. Level the radiator which would fix the slight upward slope where the pipe connects, but might not encourage draining from within the radiator itself.
Thoughts? I'd appreciate a few opinions.
