Hi there, new member here, :D

I will probably be on here asking advice quite often as the house i recently bought is a disaster area ! :cry:
My first problem is that i am going to be a dad shortly ! :rolleyes: The second problem is that i need to convert the dining room into a nursery, and as such i need to move a radiator to the opposite wall.
Have removed the radiator but found the feed and return pipes to be fed from the same 3/4" pipe, surely thats not right ? :confused:
Am also having trouble locating a return pipe under the floorboards, does that mean i have to locate the nearest radiator and link into the circuit from there ?

Any help most gratefully received ! :LOL:
Stuart.

You have a one pipe system, there is no actual flow and return pipe, only one pipe in a loop, you have to extend the loop (3/4" pipe) across to the other side of the room with the pipe underneath the rad and tee off as it was before, if you only run the 15mm branches off from the 3/4" pipe to the other side of the room to the rad wont get hot.

Nice one Pedantic, ;)
Saves a big job because the pipe actually runs from where i want to fit the radiator ! Probably originally fitted there.
Still it does sound weird ! :rolleyes:
Thanks for your help.
