Radiator vents, damaged by water?
I apologize in advance if this sort of question has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything definitive when doing a search.
On our one-pipe steam system the automatic water feeder failed in the open position. The result was a flooded boiler and water traversing up the pipes and out some of the vents in the radiators. The feeder issue has been resolved. (i.e. we got a rid of it and I'll be doing manual feeding from now on. Don't need to come home after a long weekend away to that again.)
My concern is that the radiators vents may have been damaged from the water going through them. After the fact, heat seems to be working fine, but just curious if water going through vents damages them in someway or if water through a vent is no big deal.
Thanks to all the contributors here. I've learned so much from you all.
