baseboard heat removal


I have baseboard hot waterheat. I want to remove the basement zone to redo my basement. Can I just turn that zone off cut and drain it or do I have to drain the whole system? What is the best way to drain the system.

What do you have as far as shut offs? Drain valves? If you have these things on your feed and return line then you can isolate the line you will want to shut the feed off and bleed the return this will drain your Line that you want to take out.

Then yes you will have to drain it all from the system. You can put shut offs by the zone valves this way if you need to do work again or leaks you can just shut the line it's self put a boiler drain valve at the end of your return. Just a thought though you don't need to seems like a small system you have anyways.

If I drain the system then remove the whole zone do i have to cap any parts of it before I fill the system back up?

Your are taking the baseboard line out and not putting it back?
If you are putting the line back in put 2 shut offs on each side of where you cut the pipe.
If its being remover forever then cap them.
You are soldering? If your un shore about how to solder then they have sharkbites you can you that requires no soldering.
