As many from the steam section know I have had nothing but problems with these 1As getting a droplet of water stuck in the vent orifice.  Some guys say they have no problems with these vents, if this is the case then these are for you.<strong>  Obviously I cannot give any guarantees with these vents other than they have not been tampered with and do not show any obvious signs of defects.


That said,  these vents are like new and have only been used in one season really as my system didn't get up and running until Dec 2011.  I currently have 7 I can part with.  I will have 4 more once I have money to replace them with Gorton's.

I would be willing to part with them in exchange for Gorton's or equivlant price which I think is fair being they were $10 more each then a Gorton.  I currently need two Gorton 5s and two Gorton 4s.  <strong>If this offer seems too steep send me a PM I may be open to other offers.


These seem to be problematic on radiators in my system which have very long runouts in the neighborhood of 20 feet.
