    Not sure why but I had a feeling that adding a radiator return to this old drain off/isolator valve was a bad idea but now i've drawn it out it looks like the same situation as the radiator above.

    Does this setup cause any issues? in my mind the water has 2 flows hitting head on? larger pipe is 3/4. 20181229_144814.jpg

    Any ideas? i'm hoping to do this soon but a little worried adding a new rad from there will cause flow issues?

    Can't see for squiggly blue lines. Are there 2 pipes or just 1 pipe that loops back on itself.
