Hi all,
Hoping someone can help me. I'm about to exchange 8 rads in my house including adding new trv valves to each.

My question is... once ive drained the CH system will i still be able to use the boiler for hot water? id imagine the job will take me a couple of days depending what time i have and i'll be in the bad books if we cant have hot water during this time. Don't really want to put a couple of rads on then refill system just to drain off again a few hours later.

(boiler is a BIASI RIVA COMPACT HE)

I would change four one day then the rest the next day so you can keep the system pressurised so you can still use hot water

yeah i think this is the best option to be honest. going to try and do the four downstairs rads first then refill then when i do the upstairs rads ill only have to half drain the system i guess.

thanks for the reply :cool:

If you’re not altering any pipe work then all could be done in one go.

I wouldn’t recommend trying to use your boiler without a complete rad circuit connected and pressurised.
