Best air eliminator setup?

I have 3 zones that are base board and are constantly bleeding the systems to eliminate the air bubbles from the fresh water.

What would be the best air eliminator set up? automatic air eliminator on feed elbows, air scoops with eliminators...

In addition, what would be the proper installation of an air eliminator in the feed line to the water heater? (same fresh water bubbles problem)

there is an eliminator on the oil burner but none any where else in the zones. Every 5 days i Keep getting gurgling and flushing with fresh water keeps making bubbles over time.

thanks guys

Take a picture of this air eliminator. Possibly something is faulty.

What is the make and model of boiler?

What is the pressure and temp say on the boiler gauge?

Read the sticky's on how to verify pressure gauge and adjust expansion tank.

Also let us know what type expansion tank you have. If you have a bladderless type no air eliminators are necessary and that may be your whole issue....

If you keep having to add water to the system, you have a leak somewhere.

Didn't this system just have some work on it done that required draining the system? (reference earlier posts)

If so, it can take weeks to get all the air out that was introduced during the refill.

And it may be that the air eliminators are not working... either defective or not properly installed...
