- Bleeding radiators – unusual valve content
Is there anyone who can advise poor little me please?
Majority of radiators have standard type of valve (which I can do) but the newer radiators have a square shaped one. ❓
It almost looks as though a flat head screwdriver is needed.
Any ideas please?
As always, thank you so much. 🙂Posted 7 years agogusamcMember
pic would help as I don’t really get your description
I have the square type(which I think is pretty universal) and there is a standard key available.Posted 7 years ago
this may or may not fit …. as I’ve not seen that new type
but ?? is it the top one ????????Posted 7 years ago
Just a little update from C_G Towers:
One of the extension radiators proved to be a struggle – ended up using pliers to hold the nut in position whilst I undone the valve. All have now been done and the proof of the pudding will be when I next put the heating on. 🙂
Thanks again for all the replies and you may be interested to know I have bought a new book entitled the Ultimate Encyclopedia of DIY. 8)Posted 7 years ago
Little update … heating went on last night, all OK apart from one radiator same as paul’s pic above. Barely any heat from it.
Heating has been making a loud clunking noise, wasn’t sure if it was fireworks, so suspect it needs some magic potion pumped into the system.Posted 7 years ago
