Re: Steam Radiator Supply Pipe Leaking
I believe your referring to my post. First off I'm not on this board to compare qualifications with others. I'm here to try to help others with problems I have experience with. I have been in the plumbing & heating business for over 50 years. That is how I make my living and provide for my family. It's not a side line for me. I would never give advice that I felt could be dangerous or cause injury to others. As far as your comments about steam not causing burns. To make steam you have to boil water and that requires 220 degrees. I would say that can cause sever burns. As far as it just rolling out of a open pipe that is true but restrict it like it would be through a pinhole leak and it won't appear to be to be just roiling along. Seam pipes and radiators get very hot. I saw one case that I will never forget where a small child had gotten his hand caught in a steam radiators. It blistered his hand up something awful. Just replacing radiators for four months and maintaining a steam doesn't make you a steam expert. In the future I would suggest before giving advice on how to patch something rather then make a proper repair think of the potential danger and damage it could cause to others.
