Can I put a trv on this?
Hello there, does anyone know if you can directly swap a standard radiator for one of these, onto the existing,remaining pipework? Thank you.

Yes, but your pipework needs to line up. I would recommend letting a plumber do it.
I would avoid this radiator because it's chrome. While it looks nice and shiny it won't give out much heat compared to a white or dark one. It will warm your towels but won't warm the room as much.

Did not know this about chrome being less effective.

I've always wanted to replace our chrome towel one in the bathroom with a new one but unless the pipes line up I'm not for having to chop plaster-work etc and can never work out where the pipes are to be - this one tells you in the spec that the threads are 455mm apart, well done Wickes.

PS Do these NOT come with rad valves, I notice they are an added option at £9.99 each?

Highly unlikely, I have fitted dozens and yet to have one line up and seen lots of hysterical (and ugly) diy pipe conversion using flexible basin connectors (swinging in the breeze), brass compression fittings and plastic push fit fittings.

The centres on this radiator is 455 mm so just measure your two pipes (centre to centre) and you will know for sure.

For everyone's information this radiator has a 0.34 kW output.

Very wise words.

Replaced a chrome with a grey one and heat output was 10x better.

Fitted a white one in my latest house.
