plastic caps of radiator valves


Postby sallyh » Tue Mar 25, 2008 1:25 pm

Hi

the plastic tops of my radiator valves need replacing as they are filthy and i cant get them clean. I can only seem to find the whole valve which is £££. Does anyone know if I can buy the plastic parts anywhere?
thanks

REMOVE, PAINT AND REPLACE.
USE PLASTICOAT SPRAY PAINT.

A clue as to the make and model may help answer this post.

SALLY,

REMOVE CAPS.
PLACE IN PAN AND COVER WITH STRONG VINIGER/WATER SOLUTION.
BRING TO THE BOIL AND THEN REDUCE TO A SIMMER UNTIL DEPOSITS LOOSEN.
CAPS MAY THEN BE REUSEABLE AS IS,
OR
SPRAY AS PREVIOUSLY SUGGESTED TO IMPROVE.
