Pitching Radiators / 1 pipe steam
When I got the house last fall, my radiators knocked - I pitched then and the noise stopped mostly. We recently removed a radiator from the pipe to fix the floor underneath it and being curious I stuck my finger in the radiator - there was a fair amount of water in it. So I decided to pitch the back end, appx 1.5’’, and I put a cup on the valve side...i bet there was appx 3 tables spoons of water which I initially thought was a lot because I thought all the water had to leave the radiator to prevent knocking. Is that normal for some water it sit in the radiator. This particular radiator starting knocking at the beginning of the heat cycle towards the end of winter which could be because of the collection of water. Thoughts? I would be concerned about pitching a radiator that much thinking might brake the pipe.
