Radiators cold at the top?

4 DRAPER Solid metal keys for bleeding radiators

Decent brand, well reviewed - and probably the best price around for 4 keys.

Keep them round the house, ready for action.


"You might think a cheap alloy key isn't as good as a more expensive brass one. However, it does have an advantage.

Because the key's metal is softer than the bleed screw, it is less likely to damage the bleed screw head than harder keys."

One faulty broken rad key doesn't mean every other one will break - any more than one faulty Worcester Bosch boiler means all the others are defective.

Every item has occasional faulty ones - and, let's not forget, these are 25p each. I think you can afford to take the risk! :wink:

Why are you promoting something rubbish??

The company sent me a replacement key and it also broke.

Waste of time and money.

DO NOT BUY! :smile:

I think you need to learn how to use radiator keys. These are near impossible to break. :thinking:

Also remember and check your boiler pressure after bleeding the rads in your home, too often the pressure drops and people are left with poor no no heating as a result and it's easy to top up the pressure in your boiler, Google or you tube will show you how

My mum had some parts replaced on her boiler and asked the plumber doing the work if he could get her a key so that she could bleed her radiators as she had mislaid it (my father used to do it, but he now has dementia and can't do it any more). He turned around and said to her, "Oh, so you know how to top up the radiators do you then"? I thought that when you bled the radiators, only a little bit of water was lost, but the man made out that she would lose so much of it that she would have to top them all up? Is it a simple procedure, or something best left to a qualified plumber then? Thank you.

I'm afraid the plumber is conning your mother. It's an extremely easy procedure (check YouTube), it takes about 30 seconds per radiator, and any loss of water is minimal. You certainly don't need to 'top up' the radiators.

Completely agree! Never had any problems bleeding the radiators. Such a simple job!

Simple job, you don't top up the rads you just top up the pressure to the boiler, check what the pressure guage should it at for your boiler and there will be a pipe going into the boiler which has a little leaver, your turn the leaver and it tops the pressure up, just allow enough water in to repressurise the system that's it, if it's needed at all

These look like the better ones with a flat bottom (the bit you poke into the radiator). The brass type ones although stronger seem to have a cone shaped square end that slip on a hard bleed nipple.

Proper brass ones in Toolstation for 49p. Not sure why you'd need more than one either, just keep it in the tool box and go round the whole house when you want a bleed session...

If 1 breaks you have 3 more or is that why they give you 4 for that price :wink: heat added.

Deal finished price put up to £1-75 now. I can also report these are made of soft metal and do sheer off but if they do its probably because you are over tightening the valve!
