There is a leak on the main return shutoff valve on our hot-water heating system (1940s-era black iron). Is there a way to replace the valve washer which doesn't involve draining the water from the system? Is there some sort of air bladder that a plumber would have that gets put into the opening and inflated to stop the outflow temporarily, so that only some of the system's water drains out?
