|In response to Re: Can I Test a Used Steam Radiator Before Connecting It?|
: Hello All,
: I recently removed an unsightly and poorly-functional metal wall radiator. I acquired a cast-iron one from a local church basement (it was NOT connected...just sitting in the basement).
: 1. Does the rust on the bottom part of my "new" radiator mean that it leaks? I've heard that rust on a cast-iron radiator is not an indication of leaking, but no one that I've talked to is too familiar with the project.
: 2. Is there some kind of water/air test I can do with the radiator BEFORE I attempt to hook it up? I'd like to be reasonably sure of its' functionality beforehand, as there is brand new carpeting throughout the room the radiator is going in.
: Thanks for all of your help. I just came across this site...it's amazing!
Rust on the feet doesn't mean the radiator leaks.
