My kitchen has a radiator with pipes going into a concrete floor. I am thinking of removing it while I decorate behind it and also flush it out at the same time.
As there is no play in the pipework I am worried about what to do if I damage the pipes, particularly when retightening the joints. My biggest fear is of fracturing a pipe at the point of entry into the concrete.
How would I recover that situation? Presumably I would have to dig up the concrete floor to a sufficient depth to joint a new length of pipe?
Any other suggestions on how to handle this?
