2 pipe steam system main vent spitting water
I have posted these two pictures because I am baffled. This is an existing two pipe system. There are traps on the radiators but only these check valves on the return. The vent to the right is on the end of the supply pipe. The one on the left which is spitting water is the return pipe. I have the system set for less than 2 psi.
A question I have is since I cannot put the vent back in the return piping where it should be. Could I put 2 90’s out of the riser where the vent is and move the vent away from the riser and will this stop this nuisance?
