Temporary removal of cast iron radiator
Hello everyone, I’m planning on removing a cast iron radiator in my bathroom. This is for three purposes: 1. To have the radiator clean and painted 2. to address the wall behind the radiator and 3. to tile the floor beneath the radiator.
I was wondering if turning off the local radiator valve and then plug in it for a few days will be okay? Would the plug be sufficient to hold off the steam in case the valve malfuctions and would it be safe to run the steam back on for the entire house while plug in? It is a one pipe steam system.
