Question about Water Heaters
I have identified the filling inlet valve and know I have to turn it 180 degrees to do the bleed process. However, when i do this, nothing happens. As it is so long since I have done this, I have forgotten the process. From vague memory, I thought I had to turn something else as well. Also, does the boiler have to be off or on for the bleed process to take place. The boiler is only a year old and is due for its first service. My pressure is and half, below 1. I am not seeing any error messages coming up but I think the water is not as hot as it should be for the settings on the boiler which alerted me to the problem in the first place. Being a Saturday, the help line for this company are closed of course! many thanks! PC
I think you mean your boiler needs pressurising firstly connect hose hand tight open the non return valve normally teed into a 22mm pipe then flick the valve lever on the cold supply quick little bursts till you reach your required pressure best of luck
