Really simple.

Turn off input and output at bottom of each side of the rad. Best to relieve the pressure from the bleed valve if you can. Undo one side connector, but keep it pressed against the valve until you’re ready to quickly move it away and drain the radiator. You will probably spill a little, so have some towels around the area. If you have drain valves, it’s a lot easier! Open bleed valve once it is draining to let air in and drain radiator fully.
Disconnect other side. Remove the radiator tails from old radiator and fit onto new radiator. Use the caps from the new radiator to seal up old radiator and prevent drips as you move it.
You will probably need to fit new brackets, instructions are included.
Hang new rad, check it’s level, and connect up using PTFE tape on ALL threads. Open input tap, and bleed to fill up radiator. Re-pressurise system at the boiler if needed.

It’s a good opportunity to put a bottle of rust inhibitor into the new radiator before connecting it up, to keep the system clean.

It’s an easy DIY job, just fitted two myself. Changing over brand new TRVs is a bit more involved, and needs a system drain (or freeze spray). You’ll need a couple of plumbing spanners and maybe a valve key (and a bleed key), as well as drill and bits if you need to fit new brackets (recommended).

I used to work for the company that made these. They are superior, lower water content, 25mm pitch water channels, greater heat convection per m2

Fit one last week at full price got to say they are decent quality I would get the conversion kit tho as they look old fashioned without it.

How did you reserve in store because when I go to basket it says delivery only
Stock very limited on anything over 1metre wide. Unable to click and collect for most. I reserved one, paid, then just got a cancellation email through. Hot if you can get what you need but I wasted half an hour trawling for stock.
Aaargh, I need a load of these but don't know my sizes!

The clearanc section in Hull branch is worse than a shambles - good luck finding anything

Me three. Heading on hols today and could've picked up a few. With my luck will have to pay full whack on my return esp as my local store has a few that I'm specifically after size-wise. Grrrr!!!
Just changed a 2.4 m 100kg in the front room, 2 men, a skateboard and a hunchback for life. Will take a look as mine are fill of iron oxide sludge and rust spots.
What is this conversion kit poeple mention???

The conversion kit allows you to modernise the look of the installed radiator. It's basically a metal plate that sits either side of the radiator and a grilled plate at the top.

I personally don't like the "boxed" modern look and prefer the traditional look.

The conversion is installed after the radiator is hung - in case you're wondering on fitment.
radiator 8 quid and replace it 80 cost..

Or just buy the radiators with them already fitted, and you'll find the added bonus of loads of stock, everywhere..

That sounds about right tbh..

I want to replace a single rad with a double. Conservatory and door to extension means it struggles to heat the kitchen now.

Guys, if going for installer, better buy a double panel double convector radiator for small/medium sizes and double panel single convector for width greater than 1200cms. The installation cost is same, but will heat the rooms quite quicker and will stay warm for long time after the heating is switched off. Look for BTU information of the radiator you choose and decide.

Really not that hard to do if it is like for like, when you are changing sizes or locations then draining, pipework and inhib refill are involved.
BTW just picked up a 600 x 1000, was showing 600x1200 in stock but error. To replace a 600 x1400 that has pinhole rust spots. One more still in stock in hanworth store.

Good luck finding any. Shelves totally empty in Stockport.
Just want to say the tails can be a nightmare for leaks.. I'm pretty good with DIY but getting the right amount of ptfe tape on the tails and not have them leak is a right faff on.

I replaced a radiator that was a different size... The olive didn't seal well with the chrome so needed a bit of ptfe on it and then I had the tail have tiny leak. You need a lot of patience to replace one that is a different size. Just watch a lot of YouTube and take your time understand what you're doing.
No stock
There is enough stock around to make this a good deal if you are prepared to travel a little or are lucky enough to be going somewhere at the weekend with stock. Picked up 1 locally on c+c and rung up regards 2 more ( that showed In stock but it wouldn’t let me buy online)which they set aside for me. 1x21 and 2 big 22s. And the conversion kit is a top tip.
Generally it looks like the south east and the west mids have stock of these!

I would say so yes. I have still bought these radiators after leaving the manufacturer
Thanks for this - my hallway radiator has a slow drip from a rusty bit at the bottom - so time to replace...
We arrived in Stockport around 9.30 and the woman before us cleared the shelf. We wanted 4 and she managed to get there before us :-((.

She cleared the shelf off all stock
Just got the last 1600 x 600 from Stockton and reduced further to £15
Worth checking the barcodes if you can find the same models in store... my OH picked some up today that weren't labelled as clearance but went through til reduced. They weren't showing on the stock system either lol. We had to try two different Wickes 30 miles apart to find some though.
The company that make the radiators have gone bust so they're selling them off
Mostly all out of stock since early this morning, put two on my basket, enter delivery details and then told out of stock for delivery and click and collect. Frustrating.
Arrived at 19.30 Bridgewater store, 4 trolleys full of radiators waiting to be picked up by entrance included one for me:)
ordered 2 for delivery and hoping to pick up one in store tomorrow. i will call them to check if it is in before i go there.

Going for double panel single convector for our replacement rads. They’re 1200’s and replacing single panel units, so should hopefully be an improvement. Old ones still work fine but have started to rust.
Out of interest, does anyone bother painting radiators that start showing signs of rust on the outside edges?
