Moving Radiator


Postby aledlgriffith » Mon Jun 11, 2007 12:21 pm

Hi

I need to move a radiator from one wall of a room to the another. The floor surface is chipboard so I could extend the pipes under the floor. I believe the system is a microbore system with 8mm pipes going to each end of the radiator from under the floor. Could anyone please suggest the best way of extending these pipes.

Thanks

Simply Build It

Quite a simple job, using connectors and 8mm pipe, cut the pipe and clean paint etc off old pipe and fit either a cappillary or compression connector. Connect to the new pipe and run under the floor to the new position for the radiator. Will need 2 8mm compression rings for radiator valves, unless you upgrade the valves as well.
