Draining & moving a radiator

Posted by Ken Nan on November 11th, 2001 01:32 PM

We want to disconnect a radiator so that we can move it and repair the flooring underneath and then put the radiator back.

After shutting off what we assume is the water valve on the pipe at the side of the radiator, we have been draining it via the bleeding valve on the radiator's opposite end. However, after 20 bucket loads of water, we are wondering if this is the wrong way to go about it. [The radiator is 84" long and 23" high.]

Any help would be greatly appreciated as we wish to avert a Niagara Falls in our bedroom when we disconnect the pipe!

Thank you!
