Hi In most air-conditioning systems, the condenser unit is located outside the house and is prone to accumulate dirt and debris from trees, lawn mowing, and airborne dust. The condenser has a fan that moves air across the condenser coil. You must clean the coil on the intake side, so, before you turn off the power to the air conditioner, check to see which direction the air moves across the coils. Here's how to clean the condenser:
Step 1: Cut down any grass, weeds, or vines that have grown around condenser unit; they could be obstructing airflow.

Step 2: Clean condenser with commercial coil cleaner, available at refrigerator supply stores. Instructions for use are included. Flush coil clean (do not use hose); let dry.
Step 3: Clean fins with soft brush to remove accumulated dirt. You may have to remove protective grille to reach them. Do not clean fins with garden hose, as water could turn dirt into mud and compact it between fins. Clean fins very carefully: They're made of light-gauge aluminum and are easily damaged. If fins are bent, straighten them with fin comb, sold at most appliance parts stores. A fin comb is designed to slide into spaces between fins. Use it carefully to avoid damaging fins.Step 4: Check concrete pad on which condenser rests to make sure it's level. Set carpenters' level front to back and side to side on top of unit. If pad has settled, lift pad with pry bar or piece of 2-by-4, then force gravel or rocks under concrete to level it.

Boiler pressure


If there is no leak anywhere in the system [pipes & radiators] Check the emergency pressure relief valve. It usually is at the base of the boiler and drains to outside [15mm pipe] where, if the valve leaks, water drips can be seen.. Looks similar to the picture with your query
Renew the valve
You can take it apart and clean it but I've never found that to be successful in the long term

Worcester 350 boiler pressure low - warning light comes on so i top it up with water half an hour later the pressure drops again. Have checked rads and pipes no obvious leaks. Water seems to be coming out...


That overflow is the Pressure Relief Valve.usually they are set at 3-3.5 bar but over time they can be gunged up inside and leak/allow water to flow out. Dismantle & clean or replace. Turn off mains water and ch pipes before removing - operate valve remove & allow for some water to leak from it

Very Hot water coming out of overflow pipe


Is your boiler heating your domestic hot water if so i would turn water off to water maker and see if your boiler pressure stays down below 20 psi. If so water maker is bad. The other thing that could cause this problem would be the boiler pump is out.

Boiler loosing pressur


generally preesure problems are caused by the following- obviously a leak, bleeding of rads without topping up the pressure, pressure relief valve passing( probably an integral part to the boiler), or potentially a problem with the expansion vesell.
the expansion vessel is a tank which
holds water and air- it should be pressurised with air by about 10 psi or up to 1bar, if the diaphragm has split this ill cause pressure problems all day long

hope this info helps
