morning Brain,
We have to replace a radiator upstairs and some of the pipework under the floorboards. Do we have to drain the whole system down or can we just drain the upstairs part - my husband thinks we can but I am a bit concerned!! Thanks Gail
Yes, no problem - you can drain as much as you want as long as it is below the point you are working.
It is just sometimes easier to use a drain point on a GF radiator.
