Fitting a towel radiator

Postby yar » Sun Nov 18, 2007 3:30 pm

Have taken off a radiator and want to replace it with towel warmer which isn't as wide. As well as that there's a 15mm fitting on the inlet and a 22mm on the outlet. Is there any way I can fit the towel warmer without having to rip up the floor (which is ceramic tiled?)

Yes you can extend the pipework to fit any size towel rail or radiator - but there will have to have abit pipework above the floor, which some people mind and some don't. Would imagine you already know this, not sure what type of answers you were looking for.

You could use chromed fittings to make the blumbing easier on the eye.

and a 22-15mm reducer will take care of the pipe size problem. technically no problem, getting the piping to look neat and tidy is the hardest part
