MYSON Radiator Bleed Valve/Screw/Vent/Nipple Replacement
About this deal
With most common radiator designs, at the top of each end, there will be a plug inserted – one of them will be blank (smooth finish) and the other will have some kind of opening or fitting that can be opened with a tool or key – this one is the bleed valve. Why do Radiator Bleed Valves Need Replacing? Note: If you were unable to open the bleed valve in step 3 – undo the plug slowly and be prepared for some water to escape. Step 5 – Wrap Your New Plugs with PTFE Tape You should be able to isolate an individual radiator with its own valves, with the caveat that some thermostatic valves leak a little when turned off especially if the room gets cold (mainly old ones but not necessarily). The balancing valve on the other end, which is almost always present, can be reset by counting turns as you close it then opening it the same amount. You'll get some water out, and it will be dirty, so protect the floor, walls etc.
Personally, I know I need to drain, flush, descale, and refill, including inhibitor every couple of years anyway, because of a combination of hard water and the lowest point being a blower unit that easily clogs, in a room that needs the heat. Getting the sludge out of that is a good few hours' work; fixing this valve would be a minor addition to the effort. I'd one of each main type to have on hand, but consider it not guaranteed to fit so wouldn't remove the old one when the shops are shut. Products Myson Column radiators can be curved to fit most applications, upon special request. Or alternatively smaller radiators can also be used to make up the total length of the Aluminium plates are laid between floor joints and MYSON FLOORTEC underfloor heating pipe is secured within the plate
You will want to take your new plugs and wrap the PTFE tape around the threads, pressing the tape into the grooves as you go. How many times you wrap the thread will depend on the valve, but 3 times around is a good benchmark. Keep the valve open until the water stops flowing out although if you are unable to open the bleed valve, move on to step 4. Step 4 – Remove the Bleed Plug

There are a number of reasons why you need or want to replace your bleed valve but don’t worry, it is not a difficult task so keep reading and we will cover that shortly. Leaks As you can see, this is not a difficult task and no need for panic stations. The best thing to do is keep calm and carry on. The article above is aimed at replacing standard bleed valves located on most radiators.
Our DECORATIVE range includes 8 different products with compression or push fit connections in 10mm and 15mm sizes After removing the plugs there will be a bit of air in the system that should make it to the AAV although now would be a good time to make sure all of the radiators are bled. Conclusion No, all radiator bleed valves are not the same size. Although many radiators use a standard size, you may find that designer radiators will have a different design.Now you will need your adjustable spanner to remove the bleed plug (and the blank on the other end). I don't absolutely have to replace the bleed valve, because I have found I can still bleed the radiator by loosening the nut - it's just a bit more inconvenient than a radiator key.
