Residential Steam Boiler Basics - The Spruce

Oct 10, 2020 · Most steam boiler systems in homes are either one-pipe or two-pipe systems.

A two-pipe system is relatively more modern and uses separate piping for the

Nov 16, 2020 · In practice, the main difference is that two-pipe steam has different problems and steam traps, not used in one-pipe, are more likely to be an issue.
