    Does it work at all? The 2 tees connected to make an 'H' is something.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Looks like a Crown-rebranded Dunkirk. And of course they bushed the steam outlets down to 2"....... you can't fix stupid.

    I know what it'll look like when you're done with it!

    It's not just a Hartford loop? Maybe a little high?

    Didn't know you could do primary secondary with steam and closely spaced tees. That's different.

    There are more creative steam installers doing this type of work than we could ever fix

    I tell people all the time. This trade isn’t that hard, at minimum, you just have to open that little packet of paperwork that comes with the equipment and make it look like the picture. The hacks make us seem like geniuses.

    Maybe some installers could never color inside the lines when they were kids.
