Tapping pipe for steam main (w/ pic!)
Hey everyone. I need to drill and tap some threads to add a vent into the above pictured setup (if you look closely, there’s a plug, they probably removed the vent when they put the wall in). This is the last run and return.
I know it’s not ideal for several reasons, but I don’t have clearance to add a T or pipe one in.
My question is, is drilling and tapping a pipe as easy as ... well, just drilling into the pipe? And best place to put it? I was thinking into the elbow but the old one was at the top of the return.
