Frequently Asked Questions

How do I top up the pressure in my boiler?


There are a few different styles of filling loop dependant on the boiler manufacturer. One of the most common is a silver braided hose with one or two black quarter turn taps. By turning one or both (if there are two) of the black taps the pressure will start to rise on either the gauge or digital read out. Make sure that you stop the filling process by turning the tap(s) back to their original position once the pressure reaches 1.5 bar.




How do I reduce the pressure in my boiler?


The best and easiest way to release/reduce the pressure in a sealed system is to vent/bleed a radiator into a bowl and keep checking the pressure until it drops to 1.5 bar.




Water is dripping from the copper pipe on my boiler, what should I do?


The most common cause for the pressure relief pipework to drip from a boiler is a failing expansion vessel. It is possible in some cases to re-charge the vessel, however this will need to be completed by an engineer. If you would like our help with this, feel free to get in touch as we would be happy to help.
