Fitting Towel Rail Heater in Place of Radiator

Postby terry38102 » Thu Nov 20, 2014 8:22 pm

i am going to be replacing the radiator in my bathroom for a towel rail the only problem is the existing radiator has a earth wire clamped to the bottom of it.
i just wandered what you would usually do with this because dont want it on towel rail(if i have to i have to) but i was thinking to clamp it on to the pipe under the floor. would this be acceptable? or i could attach it to the radiator in the hall. cheers

Simply Build It

You can buy and earth clamp from any electrical wholesaler, the earth wire can be attached, usually by a nut/ bolt, then the thin metal strap can be passed around the copper pipe below the valve and tightened up.
If you have a combi boiler you may see a few of them connected up with earthing wires.
