I need to move a radiator a few feet along a wall for about a year or two to avoid some furniture, and then move it back to its original location. I'd therefore like to avoid having to lift all the flooring up and laying new pipes, but just put some extension piping in which can easily be removed later.
My current thinking is that I have 2 options:
- Remove the valves, extend the pipework along the wall, and install radiator + valves in new location
- Extend the pipework after the valves, so the extension effectively is part of the radiator.
I think option 2 sounds easier, I can even do it without draining the system, but (other than the weirdness of the valves not being next to the radiator) are there issues with that approach?
Or, are both these ideas stupid and I should do something else?
One extra detail, just to make life interesting ... the radiator feeds are 10mm piping, but I would probably just use 15mm for the extension. Or is that a bad idea too?
