Need advice on a steam hammer fix
So I've found the cause of the steam hammer I am getting in my house, there is a sagging section of pipe in my crawlspace. It is the section right in the middle of the run. The section from my main to the crawlspace is pitched properly, as is the section from the baseboard radiator to about 4 feet from the wall of the crawl space (see attached diagram). I attempted to re-pitch the pipe properly, but I can't pull the far end of the pipe by the baseboard radiator any higher as it is against a floor joist (I can't cut into it due to it being the last joist and the pipe intersecting with it near the middle, I had an engineer look at it). And I can't lower then end by the boiler because that would require shortening my main which would make it too short. So I had the idea of completely removing the baseboard radiator (since technically its not meant for steam), taking apart the pipe at the 45 elbow where it goes into my crawlspace, and just piping it right up through the floor there on the opposite wall from where the baseboard is located currently and replacing it with a regular radiator. The section of the pipe from the boiler to the crawlspace is properly pitched so it should eliminate the steam hammer. Is this the best option? Would there be any issues doing this?
