Building a custom radiator
Posted by Charlie Butera on February 01, 2004 at 08:17:33:
Hi all,

I would like to convert a one pipe monoflow hot watr system to a baseboard loop. The problem is that the job spec requires I keep the radiators under the windows only. Doing so will not allow for suffucient BTU output. I looked into various types of alternative radiators, but was shocked by how expensive they became.

My question is, can I build my own custom radiator by stacking one baseboard elemnt on top of another adn if so, should I pipe the water flow through one then the other using lots of ells, or should I use a monoflow tee to divert the flow through each element.

My guess is that I am not the first person to think of this, so if there happen to be any commercially available solutions like this, I would love to hear about them too. Thanks!
