A leaking radiator should be remedied as soon as possible. If it doesn’t get repaired there could be extensive damage to carpets or floorboards.

Before replacing a valve, our radiator specialist normally check to see whether any leaking is occurring from a neighbouring source. They will then dray the area surrounding the valve carefully. Then press tissue paper around various points to ascertain the source of the leak. This is essential as water can run round and drip, making another area appear as the cause of the problem

Our radiator experts have been train to check how your radiator problems happened and how we can deal with the problems so that we can prevent these problems from happening again.
There are many reason that cause radiator leaking problems :


Leaking radiator from the spindle - until the plumbers get to you – you can try it yourself by trying to tighten the nut or undo the nut and wind PTFE tape down into the spindle.


Leaking radiator at the coupling to the pipe – if you want to try fixing this yourself temporarily until our approved plumber get to your property. You can do it by tightening the nut gently if that doesn’t help, then drain the radiator. Then undo the cap nut, take off the fitting and replace the olive. Even though you would like to try it yourself but we always recommended to have this repaired by a professional registered like plumbers from Advanced Professional Plumbing & Heating Services.


Leaking radiator caused by corrosion. If it’s the case then a new radiator needs to be installed. In an emergency a temporary repair can be made using a plastic resin filler. To help with any future corrosion problems, power flush is highly recommended to flush out the existing system with cleans water and adds a rust inhibitor to the water.

How to Bleed a Radiator

Most of you may try to bleed radiator yourself but do you know that most radiators have a bleed screw at the top of the radiator. Most of the time they are positioned at the ends of the radiator and sometimes they are on the back. Radiator bleed keys are normally made of soft metals such as Brass or alloy.

We can briefly tell you how to bleed radiator. When doing it you need to ensure that the central heating is switched off before bleeding or this can introduce even more Air into the system. It's a good idea NOT to bleed radiators with the central heating pump ON - if you do, there's always a risk that air might be drawn into the system making your problems worse. If you have a header tank ensure that the water supply is not isolated to this tank then Top up the boiler if necessary!

However, note that bleeding a sealed system will reduce the pressure which will need to be adjusted afterwards - this is normally done by turning on the mains cold water feed to the system as mentioned in step 6 below. Confirm before starting the bleeding process that you know how to re-pressurise the system - if in doubt, consult a heating engineer or proper registered plumbers like us – it’s best to call gas safe (corgi) registered plumbers like us - Advanced Professional Plumbing & Heating to take care of all this for you.
