My balls up... Need to fix a radiator to the wall.


Postby The_Blade » Tue Nov 09, 2010 9:45 pm

Hello all,

I'm a newb to the forum and need a little help. We have a victorian radiator in our bathroom (plumbed in). Our bathroom got kitted out a little back-to-front in terms of which jobs should have been carried out first.

Anyway here's my problem. The rad is plumbed into the central heating and needs fixing to a tiled wall. There are fixing plates which attach to the wall and the rad is secured via small screws to the fixing plates.

I have virtually no acces to drill into the wall to get the plates secured.

Anything I can do myself or is it a plumber job?

Any help most welcome...

Cheers

Neil

Does the base/fixing plate not screw off the towel rail?

if not - You're going to have to remove the radiator, not necessarily a plumbers job.

Mark holes, turn both radiator valves off, undo the nuts on the radiator and allow water to drain into a dish.

Re-fit and refill, if you have a pressurised system you will have to re-pressurise via filling loop
