would it be advantageous to use the Two Pipe Reverse Return loop for 1000+/- sqf apartment that I am renovating or shall I stay with the Monoflow Loop

It's good stuff, expensive but effective. I'm not a fan of either reverse return or monoflow. both are restrictive and require much larger piping to carry the load. Larger piping means larger pumps and more electricity to run them as well as larger pipe that should be insulated because it will loose heat faster than smaller pipe.

Thank you for the input, do you have any other thoughts in the matter what would you use?
