Hello all, I posted a question a couple weeks back about what piping method I should use for a specific zone that my boiler is feeding. Somebody had posted a picture of a 2 pipe reverse return. I was of the belief that I had a 2 pipe direct return. Can anyone confirm?

The radiator at the top isn't connected yet. getting ready to connect it but I wanna make sure what method I currently have.

long story short, my radiator on the left is only reading around 85f and the one on the right is around 120f. my boiler is set at 190f. I bought a Klein laser gun to test them and I was shooting it at the radiator cover itself, they are slant fin copper baseboards.

I'm thinking my piping method is the problem so I don't mind redoing it all to fix it but I just wanna understand what I have currently. I thought I had a 2 pipe reverse return already but I don't know now.

Reverse return is first in and last out. Just like the factory drawing. It will give u a more even flow between heat emitters. Don't like non contact thermometers because of the emissivity and the ratio of the thermometer to object.
