Discuss Vertical Radiator HELP! in the Central Heating Forum area at PlumbersForums.net

Guys I am a newbie and need help please. I have fitted 2 vertical radiators and both are leaking on the thermostat side. I have used loads of PTF tape and I now think I am missing a part.

They are bottom fed vertical rads. Do you guys fit another attachment between the the thermostat and the radiator? A tail of some sort that the thermostat attaches too? I only ask as the thermostat side doesn't feel tight even with 30 wraps of tape. And when I looked at another (done by a professional) there seems to be another connector inbetween the TRV and into the rad.

I have attached a pic of the part I think I need BUT I maybe wrong and bow to your greater knowledge!

If there is a part....kindly tell me what it is ;)

Thanks Mike
