    'evening all!

    Not posted in a while, been busy having major life dramas! Back in the saddle now and have a quick question. Have got to get an extra rad into a one pipe system and wondered if there is an optimum spacing between tees for the flow and return into the new rad?

    Many thanks in advance y'all!

    I hate 1 pipe systems. Really not a fan. They should all be upgraded.

    Ordered a bag of swept tees (could only order a whole bag at a time). What are the best valves to use? Also should I fit a valve inbetween on the flow pipe in case it needs a bit of persuasion?...
