Removing and later relocating a radiator
I have a radiator in my living room that I want to remove and put back in the hall (the previous occupants moved it for some reason).
The pipes come down from above in the hall, have a 90 degree bend in them and then go into the wall, straight through to the otherside and into the radiator.
My current plan is like this:
1: Drain the system
2: Remove the radiator
3: Cut the pipes in the hall and add isolating valves (http://www.screwfix.com/p/isolating-valve-with-handle-15mm/89226)
4: At a later date, put the radiator back in the hall.
I've got a combi boiler upstairs with a boiler heated shower. I don't know where the radiator is in the system (beginning/middle/end). If I cut the system at this point, will the shower still work?
If I understand your question right, your cutting and draining Central Heating pipework? If that's the case, as long as you safely isolate/cap the CH PIPEWORK and then re pressurise your Central heating system, and vent/bleed etc, you will have instantaneous hot water once again. I hope this helps!
