    Hi, would be grateful for any advice on a vertical radiator. It remains warm just along the bottom. There is a water rush when the heating goes on was professionally installed 2 years ago and worked fine last winter. Cant see any way of bleeding the radiator have taken a photo at the top of the radiator that may have something to do with bleeding the radiator? Any possible ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Photo is not clear.
    But, you should need either a vent key or a flat blade screwdriver.

    Now go and check that there is sufficient boiler pressure (when boiler is cold)
