|In response to Re: Placement of monoflow tee's|
Rather what you have is the elbow creating back pressure against the MFT and thus minimizing the pressure differential that would force water up to the radiator. Can you relocate the MFT after the elbow?
: : The rule for Monoflo tees, (whether one or two), is that there has to be enough separation between the feed and return for a radiator to create sufficient resistance to force circulation through the radiator. The addition of the ell, I presume between the feed and return, should only add to the resistance and help the cirulation. Since it does not there is an additional factor at work here and it cannot be solved without onsite investigation or more data regarding the piping from the main to the radiator and back.
: Any comments are welcome.
