Change position of thermostatic radiator valve
Is it possible to change a radiator valve so that it sits on the other side of a radiator without changing any of the pipe works? If not, how much work is needed to do this?
Plumbers installed valves on the wrong awkward sides!
*Update - The wrong sides are only due for practical reasons, it's nothing to do with which way the flow is happening via the pipes.

Absolutely! If the valves are definately on the wrong side then once the system has been drained of water the valves can be removed and swapped over quite easily.
