How do i remove a hot water radiator in my home. There are pipes that can easily enough be removed, but no valve at the point where I need to remove them. These pipes run from either end of the radiator back to the main hot water line that goes throughout the home to all other radiators.

Hydronic systems are the best BUT when one has to replace a valve or do work then normally the entire system has to be drained and refilled and the air bled out.

Once you remove a radiator valve you will see a small opening in it as this allows for constant circulation to prevent freeze ups.

You had better trace the lines carefully as in a loop system if you removed a valve and plug a line you may have lost heat in one section or an entire zone depending on the piping arrangement.
