Fair enough. If only our plumber would come back, the other builders are getting agitated as he's starting to hold them up!It's a thirties semi so I'm assuming the supporting walls are brick. I actually phoned the company who supplied the radiator and they said that it would be fine without feet, as long as it was a brick wall. The plumber said he'd prefer to use feet but as they were out of stock I didn't give him a choice. I must admit the radiator was quite heavy to lift, even before filling with water.
I think this really comes down to cost now. We've found some 400 high ones here but blimey charlie they're expensive, and even more so when you had the feet and dials Do you guys think they're worth it, aesthetically?
