    Hiya,

    I have an old large heavy radiator which has falled on the wall, my son was jumping on it (brat) and one of the brackets holding it on were ripped put of the plaster taking some of the plaster with it.

    Now I have roughly a 6 inch square hole in the plaster that i need to fill,
    I want the radiator to go back in the same exact place so i dont have to mess around changing pipe lengths, so it will have to be strong.

    Also ideally it would be ready mixed, but not essential.

    What would uou recommend?

    Thanks

    Is this a solid wall or plasterboarded?
    If solid, then I would repair using one coat plaster, if boarded, then you really need to insert a support noggin/timber not only to help fit a plaster patch but to help support the rad.

    Personally I'd prefer wickes plasterboard adhesive with a little PVA added, and PVA brushed onto the damaged wall before you start. The brat won't shift it.
