drywalling over radiator control valves??
Posted by Adam on February 20, 19100 at 15:11:31:
I will be drywalling my basement walls. Problem is I have steam heat and there are is a steam pipe which runs down one of the walls (return to the boiler). It has two pressure valves - one at the top of the pipe and one from the horizontal tie in. Both valves will be buried behind the drywall as they are only 6 1/2' high and are against the basement wall. One of the valves has been leaking water on and off this winter. Can this be done? Is there any way to move these valves or remove them altogether? What can I do about the leaking valve? The house was built in the 30's. Thanks
