    Best answer: The pressure and temperature seem just about right set the pump pressure to a setting that heats up all radiators , try lowest setting first then the next, and finally top pressure keep on a setting which heats all radiators, the one thing that worries me most is.......... did the installer add inhibiting fluid to prevent internal rusting . it isn't generally known that internal rusting of the radiators takes place in the slightly acidic conditions of a wet central heating ( baseboard ) system. To counteract this condition an additive which is alkaline is added, so that rusting cannot start, and a clean system means that it is slightly more efficient. In Europe it is standard practice to add "fernox " or similar additive to bring the pH of the water up to 7 or higher ( alkaline ) By so doing black rust ( magnetite ) is prevented from taking place, therby ensuring squeaky -clean conditions.

    Best answer: Water like electricity will take the path of least resistance. UK plumbing systems in my opinion are badly designed, the radiator nearest the boiler gets "first bite of the cherry " and the last radiator gets the " crumbs " left over. In order to counteract this phenomenin installers "balance" the flow by shutting down the lockshield valve nearest the boiler, and keep the farthest rad valve wide open, On the rads in-between they adjust progressively, so that each radiator gets it;s fair share , but not more. When I was installing rads in the eighties, I used to join up the last radiator on the line back to the boiler therby giving the system two paths like a " ring main " as used in the UK for electrical wiring in houses. The beauty of this system was that it was unnecessary to balance the system . The fitting of TRV's makes no difference. SO in answer to your question DONT tamper with the lockshield valves. GOOD TRY " Vicky S " & "TW "

  • How to tell difference between fake and genuine sheepskin rug?

    Best answer: Cut a small strand of the pile. Holding it in pliers, set fire to it with a lighter/match, if it smells of wool burning it is real, if it smells of something else, it is fake. Another indication is if it sort of melts like the way wool does when it is burnt.
