Once upon a time, your steam system ran beautifully. But there’s been a lot of water under the bridge since it first went in! Sometimes systems become so altered over the years due to neglect, knuckleheads, and renovations that they are unrecognizable in their current state and performing horribly. And that’s when we think restoration. Believe it or not, all the old plans, manuals, blue prints, and details are still available for almost any steam system ever installed. Quite naturally, we have them all in our library. So when things get too far out of hand, we like to simply restore the system to the way it was originally. After all, we know it worked just fine in that condition. In most instances it is more cost effective to restore than chase after the problems one by one. And certainly more cost effective than throwing the steam out and converting to hot water. Heaven Forbid! The only good reason to do that would be if you didn’t know about us. And you do. So forget about it. One situation we find all too often is the addition of a condensate return pump or a boiler feed unit with F&T traps. No doubt at some point the condensate was slow to return to the boiler, causing the boiler to go off on low water. Rather than fix the problem in the condensate returns, the tank and pump was added at great expense, adding complexity and additional headaches to the system. Another example is motorized zone valves. Installed with good intention to help balance the heat, but almost always ineffective and often disastrous in practice. Venting is the tried and true method for balancing 1-pipe steam systems. Manual radiator or TRV valves are for balancing most 2-pipe systems. And don’t get us started on pipes that were moved by a steam ignorant plumber or contractor to accommodate a renovation. The best solution in most cases: Restore it to its original configuration.
