We are fitting a new staircase into the house and need to remove three raiators, two downstairs and one upstairs.
Spoke to the plumber and he said to find where the pipes come from and cap them off.
As there was nothing downstairs I figured they were upstairs so lifted the landing boards and found them.

Surely I dont fit a stop on them but fit a U bend so the water passes back into the other pipe so the water can circulate the system ?

Also I need advice on what I do.
The system should be under pressure so will I need to turn something off be it a tap or a valve on the oil boiler so that when I cut the two pipes the water does'nt come out under pressure.

I dont normally go near heating systems but I am unable to get a plumber to do the job for me for some time
Thanks for any advice you can offer guys

As it is the heating system is not going to be used until December so I closed the valves on the other rads in the house and connected a pipe to the drain spigot and vented the rads to be removed.
I cut the two pipes and fitted stops on them and removed the offending rads and pipework.
The Stairs can now be moved.
When we have the new oil boiler fitted in a couple of weeks the plumber can sort out my pipework I applied stops to.
