    I've recently returned from a few days away to discover this rad was leaking, there's a pinhole at the top, so I need to replace it, the dimensions are 1000mm x 800mm, the tails are on the inside of the rad, as the bathroom floor has very recently been renewed I don't really want to move the pipes. Can ayone tell me where I can get one, thanks.
    NB I have found this one but it's only 800 x 600, can't find a larger one.

    A long shot but if it is a "designer" radiator a careful look on the sides and underneath might reveal a makers label or embossed logo. Nice looking rad.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but no markings anywhere. I bought two many years ago for the bathroon and toilet and cannot for the life of me remember where from.

    Radox Amore?

    You could mount it either way around with the air vent at the front or at the back.

    Thanks for that but I'm not paying £500 for one rad, plus none of them are wide enough, I'm thinking of fitting a different rad inside the existing pipework and just turning the fittings 180 degrees, does that sound feasible?

    If you buy cheap radiators you may find that they don't last very long ;)

    I agree, but I think i paid about sixty quid for the one I've got now, that was about twenty years ago though.
