Hi I have a one pipe baseboard system with seven baseboards above the boiler and one below boiler level. Circulator is on the return. The problem is there is no heat in the lower baseboard which is six feet below the pipe run fed by regular 3/4 Tees. Question is how can I get the water to flow down to this baseboard which has no bleed valve
Thanks Steve

    You need two monoflo Tees for that to work..

    Thanks Ironman would the two Tees if fitted reduce heat to the rest of the upper baseboards even when the lower baseboard is turned of by a ball valve that is on the return down pipe.
    Thanks Steve

    You should use the louvre on the BB, not a ball valve. It really depends upon how many monoflo Tees are in the system, the piping and the performance of the circulator to answer your question. You could try it and see how it effects the rest of the system. If it becomes an issue, leave it open.
