    HOW TO INSTALL A COLUMN RADIATOR – Plumbing Tips

    December 3, 2019


    Plumberparts.co.uk. Honest reviews and advice. Boom! Selector and all that. Welcome to the days. Plumberparts.co.uk video. Alright, anyway, what we’re going to do is show you how to fit and hang this column radiator that we’ve got here. Column radiators are usually heavy, they’re lovely to look at. Their convection is not poor, really, but they’re much more of
    a modern aesthetic thing to have in your house. That doesn’t mean I like to instal them. Now, there’s a couple
    of complicating factors with this job here. Firstly, the customer actually wants this roughly here, okay? I can use this pipe here
    for my new TLV on this but the other part that’s
    at that end is miles away, so we’re gonna have to
    pull these floorboards up and hopefully we’ll be
    able to run our pipe up to the new position so it
    comes up nice and neat. The other complicating
    factor is the walls. The walls here are like
    my friend’s dog shit. They’re soft, they stink, and they don’t taste very nice. So anyway, the first thing I want to do is take this floorboard up and take the old radiator out of the way. I’ve already shut the system down, I’m not an idiot, and I’m assuming if you know how to hang or you want to know how
    to hang one of these, you know you have to drain
    the heating system down. It’s very similar to how to
    hang a bathroom towel rail. There will be a link to that
    video at the end of this one. And also, we’ll put a link on how to drain down a pressurised system. Let’s gonna be bloody mental, isn’t it? Oh! (singing) So now we put this floorboard up you can see we’ve got our
    main flow return just here We’ve got our feed into the radiator here, and another one there. And now we’ve drained down, I can probably cut this roughly back here and we can drill a new hole
    for a new pipe to come up. But, I’m only gonna do that when I’ve hung the new radiator, and I know exactly where I want it to go. So, the next thing I’m gonna do is just rip this radiator off. Oh, my God! ♫ Oh, the wheels on the
    bus go round and round ♫ Round and round, round and round. ♫ The wheels on the bus go round and round ♫ All day long. Now, we’ve disconnected each end, I’ve also put a bit of toilet rodding in each of the holes to stop any black water getting out. We should be able to just lift this off. Oh, lovely, and out of the way. Now, all we need to do is
    remove our old radiator piece. So, we’re gonna put a new TRV
    and set our valves on here. You have to spigots like this that will be what you put into the radiator. Always use Loctite on
    these and on most threads. It’s better than PTFE. Now you put your thumb on
    here and hold it like that, and get your first reel or two, just around the front, and then you go up and then you cross, cross wiggle it around a bit, cross, cross, keep wiggling it, and always just crossing and crossing. That’s what locks it in, it’s supposed to be a hemp
    and paste premix, really, I suppose that’s the best
    way of describing it. And then, just cut your
    last little bit off with the little cutter. Do this to both spigots, and then you can wind both
    of those into the radiator. And then we can look at
    actually what position we’re going to be putting the radiator in. Gonna wind out the old plug here, and then we got this our
    new spigot to go in here. Get ourselves an adjustable and just knit that. Right, so now we’re gonna look at the difficult part of this job. Basically, these
    radiators hang on brackets that sit on the wall,
    just like this, okay? They’re very, very simple brackets, a couple of holes in each. This particular company, have lovingly sent us
    some brackets already. These are expanding plugs. Because these radiators are heavy, you need to make sure you
    get decent anchorage here. Especially with one this size. What I’ll firstly do, is I’ll get my two bottom brackets and I’ll pop ’em here like that. Then I’ll know how far
    apart there’re gonna be. And that is 21.5. So I get my pencil out, about to give this girl a shout, Bracket width equals 21.5. For the next bit, you don’t actually have
    to have the brackets in. Cause we know the centres of the brackets are gonna be the same as the
    centres for these pipes here. Grab your tape and put down
    the centre of that pipe there, sometimes you need a little bit of help, someone to give you a hand. ♫ A helpin’ hand. Run it down to the
    centre of this pipe here. That is 143.2. So now we’ve got height equals 143.2. Now much in the same way
    to the towel rail video and this one, you need to decide actually where you want to hang your radiator. Now, because we already
    know our width of bracket we can define the centre of
    the radiator on the wall, divide that by two, and measure out from that, and then we know where the widths of our brackets are gonna be. When it comes to the
    height of the radiator, I always start from the bottom. For example, I want my
    radiator to be 20 centimetres off the floor. You know that your bracket
    is gonna be roughly about a centimetre and
    a half above the bottom of the radiator. So you measure up 21.5 centimetres. Because we’ve already got a pipe here that we’re gonna be going on, we’ve kind of defined as to where we’re gonna put the radiator on with that. So, what I now need to do, is I need to get my new radiator in line with that pipe down there. So I’m gonna mark up where
    my radiator valve is. By that, I mean, just
    pop in that in the side of the radiator, then I know how far the width of that has to be away from that first bracket. Let’s do that now. I know that my radiator
    valve is gonna end there, so I also know that the
    centre of my bracket is here. So, if I measure over from
    the centre of the pipe to the centre of my bracket, I get a measurement of 11.2. Here’s the pipe I need to go on. I need my centre to be on there, so I pop that on there, I measure over 11.2, and Bob’s your uncle. So, what I do, I just get my spirit level
    until my bubble is okay. A small line, just on there. So now we know where
    our bracket’s gonna be. The height I’m gonna define, we’re gonna go at about 28. Grab my spirit level to a nice horizontal line on there. So now we know where our
    first bracket’s gonna be. Now we measure up from here 143.2, all the way up, make our mark there, make sure that my spirit level’s in line so they’re not out like that. Then, what we need to do is measure across from here 21.5 centimetres. Make sure that they’re
    both level, as well, and then check all your
    levels when you’re finished. (jet aeroplane whistles) Right, what you do is
    just make one little dot. Tiny ass dot, so no one will notice. If you go slightly
    wrong, no one can see it. Then, pull out my spirit level, tiny dot, just a tiny dot, and maybe one below it. And I can see the dot we did a minute ago. That means you put a dash here. So now we know that is in
    line with that one there. And we’ll make sure the mark we made earlier on is okay. Get that level. Now we know that’s where we
    can put our second bracket. Now we measure across
    from our line here 21.5. So simple. We do the same at the bottom, cause we’re crossin’ the
    bottom at 21.5, as well. Right, so we got our spirit level that’s set to the right height here, and just over the mark we’ve just made, draw a mark there. Then the top the same. A little mark there. And then if you just want to make sure you’ve got your marks right, just check it all out
    with the spirit level. There we go, we’ve got our four marks. Now I understand what we’ve just been over is long, arduous, and pretty boring, but it’s important that you
    check your measurements. Make sure you’ve got a good spirit level. The one I’ve got is a Stabila. It’s the best. And, then, you’ve just got
    to make sure that you’ve done everything correct and right. Now the way I’ve shown you
    just now is slightly strange, because we were going
    off that earlier pipe. But most of you guys are
    gonna have a centre line, okay, and you won’t have your pipes there. So what you do then is you
    measure your centre line, get a horizontal across the bottom, measure out to your two bottom brackets, then follow your centre line up and then measure out to
    your two top brackets using that centre line. That’s how you usually do it. But because we’ve got this pipe here, it’s slightly more complicated. So now I’m going to show
    you how you actually mark up each one of these brackets and then we’re gonna drill the wall and hopefully, this wall
    isn’t gonna fall to bits, because, as I told you, it’s an absolute mess. So, we’ll go from here
    and see how we get on. Bob! I pop that on the cross. On this round there, one right down there, and I’ll do that to the next one, just across here. And then, do that to the two bottom ones. Right, spot your holes, get your drill. This is such a horrible wall, it’s gonna go easy here. (motor revs) Just gonna pop my hand on here. Now I’ll know whether I’ve
    gone deep enough for my plug. I need to go a tiny bit more. (motor revs) That’s as far as I dare go. So what I’m gonna use is
    the adjustable hole here, just in case. I’m just gonna run this up tight. (motor revs) Ah, that’s great. That is great. Not going anywhere. Right, so. We’ve got ’em all in. They’re all level. I’ve check all my widths and everything. They all look fine. So it’s now time to hang our radiator up. Put those two to the bottom there. Slide in at the top. Pop, there we go. Well, that looks lovely. Check our levels. Oh, yeah! Oh, my God! Yep, that is an absolute beauty. So there we go. It’s all done now. It’s hanging on the wall beautifully. It’s exactly where he wanted it, and it’s nice and level. I’m gonna pipe it up now, and I’m gonna film that and you can watch that in
    a second time lapse, Okay. But very quickly, there’s a cat out there eating and I want to film it eating close up. Cause I’m weird like that. Let’s do that now. Come on, eat your dinner. Right, so there we go. Piped up. I’m gonna fill it up now. There’s not gonna be any leaks cause I’m amazing. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s

    as the Korean railway Workers Union and management have now reached a deal on a
    pay rise an increased recruitment which is what the workers were asking for the
    agreement comes after two days of marathon negotiations that stretched
    over the weekend officially ending what was an indefinite strike that began last
    Wednesday it’s expected to take one or two days to get all nationwide services
    back to normal though disruption to commuter services caused much
    inconvenience during the strike where KTX bullet trains ran at below 70
    percent of usual levels

    Update Bullet trains? Monorails? An end to speed limits? Californias transportation future is going

    November 14, 2019


    Update Bullet trains? Monorails? An end to speed limits? Californias transportation future is going On Monday, my wife and daughter and I traveled home from Oakland by plane, and on landing in Burbank, my wife immediately did the math. Door to door, our trip would have taken only 90 minutes longer if we had driven, and it would have been much cheaper. Should we have traveled by sedan instead of by Southwest Airlines? If the high speed rail line were up and running, and both the time and price were somewhere between flying and driving, that might have been a preferable option. But the train is stuck in limbo, and its not clear from his conflicting statements whetherGavinjust blew the whistle or leaped off the caboose. I want to slap myself for saying this, but you can hardly blame President Trump for that hes trying to stiff us on a dollar 929 million federal grant for the project. Ill revisit the bullet train in a moment, but given the likelihood that were never going to get it together on rail, state Sen. John Moorlach of Orange County has pitched a bill to Freeways through the Central Valley on which you could drive like hell, with no speed limits. Buckle up, hit the gas and go. Burbank is a blur, Fresno a flash. Youre moving so fast, you cant even smell the cow manure at Harris Ranch. If Moorlachs idea sounds crazy to you, theres a reason for that. By my calculations, half the people behind the wheel dont know what theyre doing at any speed. Do we want lawmakers telling them to pretend theyre NASCAR drivers? Back when Montana law allowed you to drive as fast as you considered reasonable and prudent, I rented a car in Great Falls and drove at the speed of sound approximately to Helena, where the Legislature was already considering a return to numerical speed limits. When I hit 112 miles an hour in a Toyota Camry, my teeth rattled, the doors felt like they might blow off and the ghosts of my ancestors danced before me. Even free spirited, get off our backs Montanans realized this was insane, and imposed a 75 mph speed limit in 1999. But Californians are a delusional denomination, and we cant let go of the dream that getting from here to there is going to be easier one day, even though all our choices guarantee the exact opposite. We keep growing, we move ever greater distances from our jobs, and 3 in 4 of us drive alone in our cars. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is studying congestion pricing, and my vote is yes, right now, lets go. You take the most congested places in the region and charge people to drive in those areas when traffic is worst, which means that some drivers wont bother. So theres less traffic and less pollution. Yeah, there are downsides. You dont want a system that punishes the poor and gives rich people yet another break. But its worked elsewhere and it can work here, if planners could design a system that gives a break to low income people who have to drive for their jobs. Then you take the congestion fees to build more and better transit. The same MTA is considering transit options for the Sepulveda Pass, including tunneling through the mountain or stringing a monorail up and over the hill. Thats how desperate we are to relieve congestion we cant stop looking to Disneyland for answers. OK, fine, but why are we always focused on the wrong ride? Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is the model we should be looking to. Make transit easy, fun and economical and people might ditch their cars. If the open air Big Thunder train barreled over and through the pass, with passengers screaming and their hair flying as they blew by the Getty, Id move to Sherman Oaks just to ride it every day. But seriously, were never going to get anywhere, so to speak, without some smart local decisions and more clarity from Sacramento. I appreciated Jerry Browns push for the bullet train as a centerpiece of his green agenda, but Uncle Jerry did a lousy job of selling the train, and his vision ended up being more of a hallucination. Way too many delays, massive cost overuns, millions in lawsuits and no funding in sight going forward. On Tuesday, the chairman of the high speed rail board resigned. As a candidate, Gavin Newsom was so wishy washy you couldnt tell where he stood. And when he finally spoke last week, he only created more confusion. One day it sounded like the train was dead; the next day Newsom said the media blew the story. What did we do wrong? But lets be real, Newsom had said in a speech. The current project, as planned, would cost too much and respectfully take too long. Theres been too little oversight and not enough transparency. Right now, there simply isnt a path to get from Sacramento to San Diego, let alone from San Francisco to L.A. I wish there were. However, we do have the capacity to complete a high speed rail link between Merced and Bakersfield. Does that look unclear to you? It doesnt to me. I figured it meant the train was off the rails. Others saw it the same way, and the backlash was immediate. Newsoms people then scrambled to straighten things out, and the governor himself attempted to clarify, saying he hasnt given up on the bigger project. If thats true, Id like to make one recommendation to the governor. Go to Disneyland, take a ride on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and imagine traveling from San Diego to San Francisco on that.

    hope will be useful for your everyday life and we’re going to start with some
    good news for commuters here in South Korea a 72-hour strike by the country’s
    railway workers that started last Friday ended this morning at 9:00 a.m. Korea
    time just over one hour ago now the Korea railway corporation’s labor union
    staged the strike to demand higher pay and better working conditions after
    their negotiations with Corail collapsed in August during the strike only about
    60 to 80 percent of total trains were operating but now operations are
    fortunately about almost full capacity however as the railway workers demands
    have yet to be met the labor union is warning of another much longer
    strike in November meanwhile workers on Seoul subway lines 1 through 8 will hold
    a legal protest for 3 days starting in midnight Wednesday subway workers held
    their first protest last week demanding safer working conditions
