How to repair a leaking steam radiator?

Sometimes, we find that the radiator is leaking from under the plastic cap of the valve. We are telling you some processes to solve it. It might be fixed with PTFE tape.

  • First, you need to turn off the valve.
  • If you see that the water is coming out from the plastic cap then turn off the lockshield valve at the other end of the radiator.
  • Remove the plastic cap and unscrew the gland nut with the spanner. Be careful not to damage the nut.
  • Now start stretching the PTFE tape of almost 20 cm into the string and wrap it around the valve.
  • With the help of a small flat-headed screwdriver, force the PTFE tape.
  • Apply a little silicone grease to the tape and screw the gland nut back on tightly.
  • Finally, replace the plastic cap and turn the valve back on.

This process might seem difficult for you. So contacting us will be the best decision for you. So, contact us and our professional team will help you to deal with all of these.

How can we get rid of steam radiator issues?

AvailableFor Any Type of Plumbing Emergency

We Can Help

The steam boiler radiators tend to have behavioral problems. Some problems are easy to fix while some issues need to be called a heating technician. Generally, the problem is noticed in the air vent fitting.

We have an efficient team for fixing the issues. You can reach us at any time of the day. There are two different types of heating systems using a boiler. Those are hot water or steam. However, it is not always possible to know the type of system that you have.

The radiators have two pipes in hot water boiler systems. One pipe carries cold water back to the boiler after reheating. The other pipe provides hot water to the radiator. There is an expansion tank located near the boiler. The electric water pump is also connected with the boiler.

Why will you contact us?

We all know that it is not an easy job to fix the radiator leak. Moreover, if any issue occurs in the radiator, danger can occur. That’s why you need to call us. Our efficient team will help you to get rid of the problem. Sometimes the problem with the radiator is caused by a simple problem. While in other times it is not possible to sort out easily.

Checking bigger problems with central heating and boiler:

The problem can be minor or major. You should first check the central heating system. If you see that only one radiator is heated up while the others are not then you have to understand that serious damage has been caused. After that check whether noises are coming or not. If you see no noises coming out then it is understood that the radiator has been damaged completely. If a funny noise comes then some portions have been damaged. Call us. We are always at your service.

Check out the trapped air:

If you notice that only one radiator is not heating then the common reason for it is the trapped air. It causes the bottom portion to be warm and the upper portion to be cold. This is called a Radiator leak. Make your radiator bleed. Unscrew it till you hear the hiding sound. When the hissing sound will stop then check it once. If it is not working then it needs to be treated. Call us. We will treat the radiator as per the requirements.

Check out the radiator valves:

If you have checked the other two processes and still found that it is not working then examine the radiator valves. Open the left and right valves. Use a thermostatic valve that causes the radiator to stop working. If you are unable to do this then call our engineers. We have a professional heating engineer. We will help you to sort out your problem.

The system might need power flushing:

You may need a power flushing service if you find that not a single procedure is helping to sort out the problem. Power flushing will help you to remove sludge and debris which are stuck in the central heating system. Well, you can’t do it efficiently. That is why you should take our help. We are here to help you out.
