My husband and I bought our 1st house in May. The previous owners left us a note with lots of useful house info and one of the things they said we should do is flush out the radiator water system before turning it on. We just did this and now all our radiators are leaking. Is this normal after you flush? Help, we have no idea what we should be doing.
With a hot water system, the air should be bled out of the radiators, but the system should not be drained, as water does not wear out
With steam, the low water cut off should be drained, " blown down".
Send us a picture of your boiler, so we can see what sort of a system it is, and recommend which book to get from the store here to manage your system.--NBC
