(hmm, I could have sworn I posted this already, but it didn't show up)
I have a house built in 1950 that uses a hydronic single pipe diverter
tee system. The system is plumbed with iron and steel and has started
rusting and leaking. My wife and I have decided to replace it with
The original system was hung from the joists in the basement using pipe
strapping. It's about 3-4" down. In the new system I'd like to notch
the joists and mount the pipe directly (loosely, of course, to allow
for expansion) to them, since I'm finishing the basement and would
prefer to hide the pipes. Any caveats with this?
Also, we need to add an additional room to the system, but it uses
baseboard radiators, not the in-wall type that the rest of the house
has. From an article I read
(http://www.heatinghelp.com/heating_howcome3.cfm ), it appears that this
should be installed at the end of the line. Any comments?
Your suggestions are welcomed.
