How should you repair a cast iron radiator?

Answer

Cast iron radiator repair is a very important skill to know if you have antique cast iron radiators in your home. JB Weld is a very common epoxy that proffessionals use to repair leaky cast iron radiators. JB Weld is a two part epoxy that is combined and kneaded together when ready to use. If you need to repair your cast iron radiator, first locate the hole or crack that needs to be repaired. Next, knead together the amount of JB Weld that you will use to repair the damage. Then all you have to do is press the JB Weld over and into the crack or hole and allow it do dry. Once it is hardened it will be strong and your cast iron radiator will be leak-free.
