There is a joint in my baseboard heating pipe that needs repair. Is there a convenient way to drain water out of the tubes? I could drain the boiler but the inlet and oulets are higher than the baseboard, so I wouldn't get all the water out. I suppose I could blow the water out with some pressurize air, but I'm thinking there should be a better way...
I don't see a convenient drain valve anwhere along the pipes (which is peculiar, I think).
Suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Freeze it--fix the leak--thaw the pipe
if you have to ask how to freeze water in a pipe , you are over your head and you will need to get someone that can do this without flooding the home
We don't have a freeze machine, so in those situations, we blow it out.
open up both ends and suck it out with a wet/dry shopvac.
