Repressurise Potterton Performa 24 boiler

Hi,I have a Potterton Performa 24 combi boiler - the system pressure is falling below 0.5bar, hence I need to repressurise the it.How do I go about doing this? From what I can see there are 4 taps on the under side of the boiler, and one of these lets the water back in the system to repressurise itThanks

    I have the same problem. My radiator valve was leaking which is now fixed but think I need to let water back into the system. Not sure what one it is. Any help?



    Thanks

Hope this is helpful. On my potterton 24 combi boiler it is the valve that sits the lowest, with a slight indent in the black tap. if you turn this for a short period you will hear a hiss and the pressure will quickly build to the desired pressure, when you can them turn the tap back off.

Hot banging


it sounds like water hammer, you need to install a water hammer device at the water outlet of the boiler. aviliable from any plumbing stores.

Vaillant boiler (VCW GB 221) not heating up water or heating although the pilot is lit. Pump is heard working okay but there is small drips of water underneath boiler. Any idea's?


The movement of the diverter valve is critical on this appliance, and is located on rear right of the boiler, when hot water is turned on, theres are two microswitches, which must break (they both close in Central heating mode), if pump is running, it is recognising the hot water demand, check microswitches are breaking, if not, it tends to be a defective servo valve (located above the water valve), or a blocked/ restricted control line (small copper tubes which connect into the servo valve)

My aristion DIA 20-24 combi boiler keeps tripping the over heat thermostat button located under the main control panel maybe 5 times a day seems to be getting more frequent


hi,

just check your water supply of your aristion DIA 20-24 combi boiler if is in constant pressure. not properly circulated water supply can cause overheating.

and manuals can help us also in proper checking. at the link below please check this out if you don't have.

I have a Baxi Combi boiler and want to add new TRVs to the radiators. Do I need to drain the system or can just turn off all the radiators and hope not much water escapes. How do I add new inhibitor...


You will need to isolate the boiler from the radiators because there is an auto feed valve that will continue to allow water into the system if the pressure in the boiler drops. There should be some valves off of the boiler that will allow you to do this.

I have a 6 year old Halstead Ace High boiler which has many recurring problems due to a bad fitting. It was never flushed out causing the heat exchange needing to replaced TWICE through clogging and then...


Firstly your system needs a power flush to get rid of the grot, then it needs a good inhibitor to slow up the reappearance of the sludge.

Changing the boiler won't help. Any boiler will get clogged up but the halstead DHW heat exchanger is particualrly prone to getting gummed up. You can clean this out and refit without having to buy a new one. - but without a power flush it will happen again.
