Radiator angle

leaking Member Posts: 46
One pipe system, what to be to much of an angle  back to the supply, how would it affect the heat output. I have radiators raised 1-3 degrees some maybe more .

    So long as there is adequate pitch back to the inlet, you're fine. What is adequate? 1/8 inch per foot probably isn't really enough. Quarter inch works. There is no maximum.
