Can a radiator return condensate to wet return?
My home steam system has all radiators returning condensate through traps to the dry returns. I want to add a new radiator in a basement room and the only return I can use would be the wet return which only returns condensate from the ends of my 2 steam mains. Are there any problems hooking a radiator up to a wet return? How high above the waterline in the wet return should the bottom of the radiator/ steam trap be located?
