bleeding a boiler system
Bleeding the boiler of sludge and stuff or bleeding the system of trapped air? You probably need to tap the radiators of it is an air problem and I think the system needs to be one for that. Be careful though, don't get burned by the steam!
I find it handy to have a short garden hose ready and going to a drain, laundry sink, or whatever when flushing out boilers. Beats hauling buckets of disgusting crud. Do make sure the valve closes again all the way when you are done. Sometimes crap will get stuck if it is not flushed out all the way.
