Corrosion to chrome towel radiator

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?

Where can I buy a new illuminated on/off switch?

An electronics shop or auto parts store should have one but it might not be an exact fit. If the switch is stuck in the ON position you could just leave it and put a new switch on the line cord.

I need to remove a Moen towel bar. It has a tab under the bottom but I dont know what to do

There should be a "set-screw" (a very small screw) at the bottom of base (fat part) of the towel bar. It screws in to hold the fat part of the bar to the "tab". Loosen the screw by turning it counter-clock-wise. Once loose, the towel bar will lift off the tab. Be careful not to lose the screw!

How to Install Towel Bar?

Since towel bars are usually installed onto separate hardware that's mounted on the walls, use the actual hardware as a template to mark exactly where to drill your mounting holes. Hold a piece of mounting hardware against the masking tape and use your pencil to mark the actual spots to drill your holes. Use different-sized drill bits to drill for the two ends. The Molly bolt or wall anchor will require a much larger diameter hole than the screws going directly into the stud. (The size of the hole required for the wall fastener will be marked on the packaging.) Install the wall fastener into the wall, then mount the hardware onto the wall and place the ends of the towel bar over the hardware. Attach the towel bar to the mounting hardware using the screws included with the towel bar. These are commonly small-slotted screws located on the bottom of the end pieces of the towel bar.
