Best way to get glycol into a system?
Turns out I get to pipe in a small radiant system that's going to use glycol in the snowmelt side of the system. What's the cheapest-yet-easiest way to get it from a 5 gal bucket into the system? Old-time boiler shot feeder?
We don't commonly do hydronic heat, so buying a specialty tool isn't especially likely (although I could throw a fit if necessary); but I'd also like to make it easy for the owner to do what they need to do later on down the line.
