Heated(electric)Towel Rail


Hi I'm interested in purchasing a heated towel rail for a bathroom, but I do not want to have it plumbed into central heating system, so electric is the option. I've found in catalogue (Screwfix direct) a option which I would like to know from u lot if it correct/possible. They have more variety of towel rails that are for plumbed in systems, then electric, but there seems to be a heater element that appears to fit some of the rails, thus making the rail either plumbed or non plumbed (electric). Is this correct? If so what would I fill the towel rail with i.e distilled water or oil, if oil what sort? Cheers

Believe you have to use something other than water, or at least treated water as water on its own would corrode. Have a word with a local plumbing shop. Or I'm sure someone here will answer.

I would not fill the radiator with oil. Just use water. If you wish, you may add some central heating inhibitor (I would).
Are you sure that you cannot find a dedicated electric towel rail that would suit your needs? Try a plumbers merchants.
