    Ok, all rads isolated at both sides and I've also isolated the flow and return at the boiler, which is off, of course... Well, the heating is off anyway. Plus I released the remaining pressure in the system by opening the bleed valve and opening both valves at the bottom... And closed them again. I have my new bits of pipe with valves connected and I'm heading under the floor.

    Wish me luck!

    Barely a drop spilt! The only water that came out was the little dribble in the bits of pipe I was removing!

    I suppose I better turn the heating on and check it's not leaking before I open up all the isolating valves on all the rads again...
