Re-installing radiators on a new floor  



I recently removed the radiator from my bathroom in order to rip up the old vinyl tile and subfloor. I've laid down a new 3/4" plywood subfloor, a 1/4" cement board, and new porcelain hex tiles. Now that the floor is about an inch higher than it previously was, any ideas on how to reattach the radiator so it still fits the existing pipes? I'm thinking adding a galvanized coupling to make up the difference in height.


Hey Darren,

If possible unscrew the 90 degree elbow and add a short nipple to extend the pipe coming out of the floor. 

Take care to ensure that the pipe going into the floor doesn't inadvertantly spin (use 2 pipe wrenches).  Good luck!




I think by now you must have got your issue solved. In my opinion, in order to get the perfect solution to such a problem, it is always a beneficial step to hire professional contractors. Recently my uncle got a new water heater installed in his home with the help of heating system replacement service NJ team. The team offered him a worth hiring service that too under his budget.
