Does anyone have any recommendations to install thermostatic radiator valves for a one pipe system?
- I like the Danfoss eco for its Bluetooth property but worry about replacement
- Or would a macron or honeywell be a better option

    Critical question. Since inlet VALVES won't work on one pipe. VENTS will, provided the boiler cycles often enough.

    It is my understanding that TRVs are used to prevent over heating. I have seen them in use. It is my advice that if you have a one pipe steam system in a building that has more than 12 units [Apartments] or more than 4 stories, that you avoid their use. There are other things that you could do centrally that are less costly and intrusive to reduce over heating
