Radiator Problems - Again

Posted by Kristian Magel on January 6th, 2001 02:05 PM

I recently left a message on this site, asking for advice about a steam radiator leaking water from the bleeder valve. The inimitable Harold Kestenholtz (who seems to know everything about radiators) was very helpful, suggesting I use a leverage crowbar to lift the radiator, and place some small pieces of wood to raise it up. I did so, but the radiator continues to leak. In addition to the leaking from the bleeder valve, my fiance seems to think I might have damaged the bottom (or feet) of the radiator when I raised the radiator up (I used a hammer to wedge the crowbar under the radiator feet). She seems to think water may be leaking from underneath too. The question is, is it really possible to punch a hole in what look to me to be solid steel "feet", on which the radiator sits? If so, what can I do?
