In response to Re: replacing radiator valves (I'm stuck!)
For the valves, use bigger wrenches. If the pipe is assembled with cast iron fittings hit them between two hammers and they will break off.

: In the process of replacing all the old valves on our radiator system (hot water) and I have 4 valves which are just stuck and I can't seem to get them to budge.

: Any ideas on how I can get them to move?

: I also have a run of old supploy/return galvanized pipe I want to remove...it's stuck too and I'm afraid to put much stress/force against the pipe as I try to turn it loose.

: Thoughts there would be appreciated as well.
