    Hi everybody would really appreciate some help info or diagram.
    we have just moved to spain, in the mountains ,not realising how cold it is
    we have just bought a 10kw wood burning stove with back boiler, (straight feed in and out )and we need to install roughly 4--5ftx2ft radiators on a basic gravity system, with (no hot water cylinder )included,-- radiators only--,i know we need a header/feeder tank, and would like to include a manualy operated pump,
    to switch on as and when we want ,because we are on solar electric,i know im asking for a lot , and do appreciate any help info or diagrams,im not thick and have done a lot of basic plumbing,and feel this is something i can do ,but we need to do it quickly, before my fingers drop off!!!
    thanks again.. alan spain

    I can give you some limited advice because I can`t post any diagrams etc. :cry: Find some rads that have at least 3/4 inch BSP tappings on the Ends - Not backs ! Make a big loop rising up to top of house in @ least 1inch pipe use pulled bends wherever possible not elbows . Fit a large ( maybe 25 gallon) metal feed/ expansion tank above the top run of pipe . then run the pipe down through the rooms with pipes teeing to the top of each rad and back out bottom opposite end .Main pipe then runs past each rad - Only need 1 valve on the top ( full bore gatevalve maybe) . Leave 1 rad with NO valves Try not to dip down below return connection with the loop as you near the boiler . Don`t hold your breath for 10 KW or whatever ;) Don`t expect it to look pretty either- oh and convert it all to metric . ola :!:
