We have recently purchased a flat with an old central heating system.
The radiator in the bathroom has a small amount of rust on the bottom and there is a small leak coming from it. Approx 0.5 litres in 24 hours.
We would like to change all of our radiators in due time, but are considering putting in a towel rail in the bath room.
Until we are in a position to replace the radiators, will a suitable temporary solution to the leaking radiator be to simply turn off the lockshield valve and prevent water entering the radiator, thereby preventing water leaking from the radiator?
