the capped pipes did not get warm
I have connected/joined the pipes up but the amount of pipe is small and they both heat up about the same so its hard to determine which way the water is going...
I was thinking of just throwing loads of towels down and unconnecting the joint pipes and see which way it comes out... but then I would have do it while the C/H is on pumping the water around...wouldnt I? as the system full under pressure and pump not on it could come out either way.. whichever pipe has most pressure... the pump could be pushing it the opposite way.. so the only way is to remove the join whilst C/H is on and see which way the water comes out... is this right?
I dunno if I would like to risk setting it all up regardless and just testing... the instructions say in bold underlined letters "its very important the flow goes in one way..>" blah blah.. how would I know its working or not..?
I dunno about throwing down loads of towels - The OP should throw in the towel
What I have done is removed a rad and capped of the pipes, for the new rad I need to know the flow direction so I can put the "IN" pipe on the opposite side to the bleed valve - I didnt think to test the old rad before I moved it by feeling at bottom corners for heat when turning on C/H..
