I am looking to remodel two rooms and need to remove the radiators. They are hot water radiators and I know they need to be drained, just not sure how to do it. And also need to know what pressure the hot water needs to be at when it gets refilled? Thanks

if you want remove the radiator baseboard heater from one room you cannot cap the pipes, you have to connect those two pipes together by approved mean otherwise the heat in your rest of zone will not work. if the radiator is on the crawl space then it is easy to go under the floor and connect those two pipes together if the baseboard is on the slab then it will be hard to do it because not all the joints are approved under slab you have to check with your local plumbing code. when you will fill the system back then you should not have to worry about the pressure because the system itself should have pressure regulater.
I would give you one suggestion that if you can keep that radiator and work your plan around it will be better.
Wish you Good Luck!
