Radiators

QUESTION FROM lee wilkinson

I have a small leak coming from inside the on-off turn knob of my water radiator. It is only a slight leak, and it stops if the radiator is turned off.

Does it need replacing (and if so how) or is it fixable. Cheers

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Lee:

If you are lucky, underneath the knob on your radiator valve, there will be a packing nut, and if you gently tighten this nut, it will hopefully eliminate the small leak in your valve.

Hope this is helpful.
