    Have fitted some tall decorative radiators but despite repeated bleeding they constantly make gurgling noises when the heating is on.

    Any ideas why and how I can solve this please

    Are they fitted the correct way? They have baffles in them and flow and return have to be correctly oriented. If they came with valves from an Internet supplier then valves may be poor quality. Other than that, I'd say its manufacturer specific. I've fitted a few that made trickling noises all the time. You could also try changing pump speed setting but that may cause issues elsewhere.

    Also they can need a lot of bleeding depending on how they are made. If they have been incorrectly fitted some can be flipped, so it might not be the end of the world to hang them inside out.

    Thank you for your replies. Flipping may be the answer will give that a go
