Radss only hot at very bottom and nothing comes out if I try

Customer Question

Radss only hot at very bottom and nothing comes out if I try to bleed. Small tank (without ball cock) in attic is empty. Should I manually fill that small tank. Great if you could advise. Leo W

You need water in the tank to refill the system.

Go back to the tank and give the balltap a wiggle up and down and see if you can the water flowing into the tank again so you can fill the rads and vent normally

Yes, you could bucket fill it from the hot water tank
