Removing hot water radiators
I need to temporarily move all of the old hot water radiators away from the wall so I can work behind them. Each radiator has a union where hot water comes in so that should be relatively straight forward to disconnect. However, the return sides just go down to the basement below and are piped in - no unions, but the pipe is accessible from the basement.
What is the best way to move these radiators? Is it possible to disconnect one end only and then "swing" the radiator 90 degrees away from the wall but still connected at the other end? There must be a way to do this without cutting the pipe and the having to reconnect?
