Radiator bleed valves


P

Paul Williams

Hi guys

I'm looking to get hold of the little pin thing that screws into a
radiator to bleed the air off.

Just been to B&Q an dthey dont sell them. Is there anywhere that does?

Cheers

Do you mean the key, or the valve insert?

If it's the key, then B&Q do sell them. If you want the valve insert, go
to a PM and buy a complete valve if they don't just do the insert -
they're not expensive.

You can buy a complete 'Auto radiator air vent' from 'Focus' for about
£1-50. You'll also need some kind of tool to remove the old one and a
spanner to fir the new one.

Not all rads have the normal threaded plug and little pin to bleed with.
I have some round topped rads that have just the pin that screws into
the back of the rad.

I doubt that you can get the pin/insert separately, but I think it is
probably the same thread, so I would just take one from a complete unit
if I needed it.

That's the obvious way.
