The system I have is a single pipe system with what I am told is called a Wet Return. The main steam line comes out the top of the boiler and these return lines return into the bottom of the boiler on each side…it looks like the is one return going to each end of the house. These returns are T’d into the main steam line near each radiator. I have lowed the water in the site glass to about 3/4 full and yet when the boiler runs for extended times water comes out of this vent.
