    out of business- sorry

    Like Crash said, use a tunstall or a barnes and jones repair kit.

    I Hope for You

    that the numbers are on the body somewhere underneath all that paint.  It may be something like "533"



    Is that trap being used to drip a large steam main perhaps?

    The number should be on the trap body

    somewhere...usually on the side you can't get to.



    It may be a 7 series trap.



    Yeah, 5 psi is not enough...if they want to MOVE the building.  500 psi would do it.

    5 oz/in2 is all that's needed to HEAT that building.



    Were the squirting vents on the radiators perhaps?
