Feed Water Pressure Regulators A feed water pressure regulator is used to fill both the boiler and system piping (including the floor panel loops) with water. A typical location of a feed water pressure regulator in the cold-water return line is illustrated in Figure 1-15. These valves also maintain the water pressure at the required level in the system at all times. If a leak should occur in the system, the feed water pressure regulator is designed to provide the required amount of makeup water.

Many manufacturers of radiant panel heating system equipment have devised simplified and dependable methods for designing this type of heating system.

Depending on the heating system requirements, a manifold may also include inline thermometers or a temperature gauge to measure the temperature of the water flowing through the tubing; check valves or isolation valves to isolate the manifold so that it can be serviced or repaired; drain valves to remove water from the manifold; an air vent to purge air from the system; and pump flanges (for the circulator) plus all the required plumbing connections and hardware. Manifold balancing valves regulate each zone (loop) to ensure efficient heat distribution and eliminate those annoying cold and hot spots on the floor.
