The initial inspection reveals that the subfloor is damage. The radiator looks to be sinking in the floor. Steamed water looks to be pouring out of the first radiator fin. This may explain why I have to refill the radiator with water every night.
The picture shows a reddish tint to the cast iron radiator. Further evaluation of the picture reveals that there is a possible crack that is in-line with the reddish substance. CRAP!!!!I attempted to close the valve. But it seems to be corroded shut… CRAP!!!! Well that is all I have for the moment but join me next week for another installment of This Old Crappy House… Until then happy demolition….
