    Hello All

    I'm in the process of relocating a radiator and was hoping for some advice on the best way to go about it.

    If you take a look at the floor plan pic you can see where the radiator is today which is then connected to radiator #2.

    My question is should I go with route #1 or #2 or does it make no difference to how it will work? Route #2 seems easier but would appreciate your thoughts as i have limited plumbing experience?

    All help much appreciated :)

    Thanks

    Thanks for your fast feedback. Would be great if you could let me know why that's the best way as I'm keen to learn. Thanks again.

    Will make balancing the system easier if you tee off from the original split.
