Did my plumber "F" up my system?
This might turn into a long post. I'll try to keep it brief and be quick with the questions for this esteamed crew.
Long and short is that I live in an old (1927) house with a steam system that I adore. I'm a babe in the woods when it comes to the technical stuff, but I understand the theory behind how the system works, or at least a good portion of it.
Sooo. This summer my wife and I are having our kitchen redone and off the kitchen was a smallish room that had a smallish radiator in it. We are partitioning off the small room to make it a smallish bathroom and in the demo, they removed the radiator from the line with, I suppose, a plan to reconnect it to use for the heat in the bathroom.
Enter plumber (I've hung around this site long enough to know this doesn't end well) and he's piped the whole line leading to the Rad in what I suppose is 1' or 3/4' copper coming off the cast iron steam line AND has put about 5 or 6 right angle bends in it as it snakes around the waste returns from the bathroom. That it comes through the floor in a completely inappropriate spot is not an issue for this post, but nevertheless, another problem.
Now I want to tell my general contractor that
1. This is not going to work
2. That he has to fix it
But I want to be able to tell him why this is not going to work and how to fix it when he looks at my lawyer self and thinks to himself (or says out loud), "Oh yeah, what the hell do you know?"
Question # 3, for those keeping score at home...
3. When this inevitably goes sour, does anyone know of someone in or around Westchester County NY who can do this correctly.
Thanks in Advance,
