a fine steam radiator installation
A customer encountered this fine 1-pipe steam radiator installation. Note the drip pan, the paint job...the seismic bracing. The copper runout! Exquisite!
If that small pipe drains through the floor, it would have to be well sealed at that point or why bother to have a drip pan in the first place?All Steamed Up, Inc.

My wife agrees that the soldering job looks real good but the wall paint colors do not complement one another. (I thought the colors were fine together, but then...) Could you get an audio of what it sounds like? Personally I think they should move the pipe riser to correct that obivious conflict of interest of space sharing. (it would be one of the easier parts of the project).1
C'mon, Fred, where's your sense of creativity?Fred said:
There's an easy fix for this thing. Turn it upright and put a vent on the side opposite the inlet. Why would they do this?
Retired and loving it.1
I suppose if it was in a steam room it would vent and drain all it wanted, but those floors would be a gooey mess. I'll keep it in mind as a decorative steam nozzle/orgasmatron.0
