Small Diverter-tee Installation (Steamhead)

Given the size of the mains they were on, they couldn't. We decided to make the basement a separate zone, using down-feeding diverter tees.

Most of the heat loss was at the end of the basement opposite the boiler. Using diverter tees allowed us to send the heat to these radiators first. The owner already had sheetrock up so we ran the pipes exposed- which is kind of chic these days anyway.

You can see the old capped-off drop pipes under the bulkhead.
