I want to add an extra rad to my heating system.The existing pipes to the rads already fitted are 10mm My question is can I tee into the 10mm pipe to feed my new rad or will I have to go back to the main flow and return pipes which is no easy task as the floor boards were put down before the walls were put up making them impossible to lift. BY the way the hot water cylinder is a Double Feed Indirect one.

So long as the rad you are adding isnt too big and the boiler can cope with it then tee it in Theres a good chance it will work but there is no plumber alive who will guarantee that it will, so if it doesnt be prepared to take it all the way back to the manifold
