Jacobus steam radiator vents - what gives?
I would like to experiment with different radiator venting combinations, and the most convenient and cost-effective way to do it is with Maid-O-Mist vents.
I have read some pro installers steer users away from the MOM vents, due to their apparently using plastic floats internally.
When I use google to search for posts on these vents, I see many satisfied users and no evidence of them failing due to the plastic floats.
So what's the story here? Is the plastics objection just a theoretical one? Or is there any evidence to back it up?
