As long as the system has pressure in it, it does not matter whether the water is hot or cold, but if you do not install the new piping correctly, the radiator will be cold regardless of the temperature of the water in the rest of the system.

: I BOUGHT AN 80 YEAR OLD HOUSE AND AM IN THE PROCESS OF REMODELING THE BATHROOM. I WANT TO MOVE THE OLD RADIATOR ACROSS THE ROOM WHICH MEANS DISCONNECTING IT AND RE-ROUTING THE LINES TO GET TO THE NEW LOCATION. WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO LEAK CHECK THE CONNECTIONS AFTER REINSTALLATION -DO I CHECK IT COLD, OR FIRE UP THE BOILER AND CHECK IT WITH HOT WATER? ALSO, I SEE SO MANY NEWER HOMES WITH NO ACCESS TO BATHTUB/SHOWER PLUMBING - SHOULD I FOLLOW THIS NEW TREND OR PROVIDE ACCESS TO THESE PIPES?
