replacing water after bleeding radiators?

I bled my kitchen radiator for the first time today....(I'm a woman trying to do things myself) and I believe I should not have let any water escape (after about 2 sandwich bags came out) I'm wondering how much water is too much water to let out and do I need to replace it? Where would I go to do that? I'm assuming since the water WAS there is SHOULD be there....Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Some water will come out with the air, but yer right, if all you get is water, you should stop. It's air you want out!

2 sammich bags full is probly nothing to worry about, and your boiler system _probably_ has an automatic fill valve on it that will feed water as needed.

You might not have to do anything.

If you want to be sure, go to the boiler and look for a gauge. That gauge should tell you the TEMPERATURE and the PRESSURE. If your pressure is above 12 PSI, and below say 20 PSI, you are fine, nothing needed.

If outside that range, let us know...

Did you bleed the rad because you weren't getting heat from it ?
