Fixing dripping radiator
My building fitted a bathroom radiator using plastic pipes which are now behind the wall. The radiator leaks where the plastic pipe meets the radiator joint. How can we stop this - cannot change the pipe as they are behind the wall. Is there an easy fix.
Sounds like its leaking on the olive as it goes into the valve . Best to drain down heating system and take joint apart and clean off olive and re seal with some jointing compound from your local merchants
