Question about Home
I have recently fitted new chrome towel ladder radiators to a house where I have installed new bathrooms, one of the radiators corroded and was oozing brown liquid from one of the cross rails about 5 from the bottom, I took it back to the supplier who changed it but said that the radiator is probabley connected to an open system???? I said that all the radiators that I have changed were fed from the CH header tank in the loft, the radiator that I replaced in Sept 08 has today started to corrode and leak once again about 5 cross members from the bottom yet the other 2 appear to be fine, my supplier still insists it is on an open system( what does this mean and how can I find out) if they are all fed by the expansion pipe surely they would all suffer the same fate. Could it just be a dodgey batch of radiators or a more serious problem?
Your completely right mate about most conventional heating systems are open vented unless its a pressurised system..im a plumber and had at least 4 chrome towel rail rads that this has happened with,its a manufacures problem not yours,
send it back
