    Where is the Circulator pump? Since one side is a wet riser and the other side is a steam riser?

    Should you "Pump Away" from the steam riser?

    Good thing they left that loop in the piping for the vent connector to fit around all that Iron Pipe.

    Ok now I’m not sure if you’re kidding or not, it’s just a poorly piped steamer!

    It may actually steam pretty good, If its small enough the velocity in the 2- 2inch risers may be low enough to allow the water to fall back into the boiler. I''ll admit to doing this once with a little 112,000 input Dunkirk with 2- 2 1/2 inch risers in a counterflow system for someone with no money to do all the extra piping. Did the job, despite not being right.
