exceptional product
By shagbark (from Wisconsin) on 9/6/2011
The system I installed last winter is running great, I would never install anything else but the Taco Vortech air seperator, infact I plan on updating my garage with the same system as I installed in the house as I have had problems with air in the past, it runs so quiet that my only means of even knowing if the system is running is buy touching the pump to if it is warm,gotta love that along with the warm floors, later Dan

Can the VRTX075-3 be installed in a heating system that has 1.25" diameter pipe? What effect will this have on the performace of the heating system if it is installed in the 1.25" diameter pipe?

The smaller unit (VRTX075-3) will restrict the flow and will be less effective in removing the air from the system. Therefore, for 1-1/4" pipe, we recommend the VRTX125-3 model.
