We're just about to have some plastering done to the hallway and they've asked us to remove the radiator temporarily. Is this a job we could do ourselves without having to pay for someone to do it? It's a thermostatic (sp?) radiator.

Thanks

Photos of the valves at both ends please.

Not a difficult job in itself.

Yes, should be straightforward for you to do.

Turn off valves each end of radiator then drain radiator from one of the joints between the valve and the radiator.

Remove radiator and check there are no drips/leaks from shut valves.

If there is your can always put a female blanking cap onto the rad valve thread.

Once the brackets are removed put the screws back in the wall plugs.

The plasterer will plaster around them but they will be there to help you refit the brackets and the radiator afterwards.

You won’t see the slight rough finish as it will be behind the radiator.

Covered above. Once you know how to do it removing a rad is one of the easiest plumbing jobs you can do and very useful for decorating.

I asked for a pic of the valves as if they are TRV's they can open under certain conditions.
