Removing Steam Valve (and everything else)
I hope this makes sense: We have a steam pipe valve sticking out from the kitchen floor.
There used to be a radiator attached to it, but it had been removed by the previous owner. The valve that sticks out prevents the door to the basement to open fully. When the heat is on, the valve is hot (I'm guessing it's still connected to the heater).
We are thinking of removing it ourselves, because we have finished all the money in our home renovation and the plumber is too expensive. Can we do this ourselves?
What's step-by-step? We can see the pipe from the basement, so we follow it and turn off the steam that goes to it and then remove the valve in the kitchen? Do we need to cap off the pipe in the basement? If so, how do you cap it off?
