    Here is my take.Being able to exchange the product at the box store is great. The box store is doing you a favor by honoring a warranty from GE.GE could make you provide the proper paperwork and...

    Running cold water through the pipes might work,but what are you going to do with the moisture that condensates on the pipes? Not just on the radiators in the entire system piping.
