I am replacing a steam boiler. There is one 3” main that goes into an inaccessible crawl space and 2” dry return that goes into the same crawl space. The problem I’m having is that the return is only 17” above the normal water line. There is no space to install a pump or boiler feed tank. I wanted to build a false water line to make up the extra height that I need but I don’t Think it will work because that dry return will become wet and the beginning of the steam main will only be 16” higher than the return at the boiler room. I’m wondering if there is some other solution that doesn’t involve a pump. The new boiler will be a 10 instead of 12 section currently installed. That will gain some space. But I don’t want the left side of the boiler with all the controls jammed against the wall like it is now. I had to change the drain and take apart the gauge glass and it was near impossible.
