-Why need to increase...?
-Here some solution for you:
-Check incoming water line. I mean the line that enter to your home. Make sure the ON/OFF valve is fully open. And if another one before the water heater, make sure must be fully open too.
-If it's already all the way up, then possibly the pipe is too old and inside build up a lot of corrosion. If this is the case, you can't fix other than replace those pipes.

Good Luck

Why does the pressure rise to over 3bar when the central heating is in operation ?


3 Bar = 43.5 PSI When you heat water it always expands increasing pressure.
In a closed vessel volume can increase by 2-3%. Either expansion tanks allow for this and PSI is maintain or without an expansion outlet the PSI will increase in proportion to heat supplied.
Is this a low temp hydronic boiler operating at or <140F, a hi temp hydronic boiler @ >180F or steam boiler?

How do you adjust the pressure on a watts regulator to increase the flow of water?


Turn it clockwise to increase pressure on a watt's pressure relief valve. You will have to gradually adjust and check pressure till you get it to desired pressure. You don't want to exceed safe pressure due to damaging water lines or fixtures.

How do I set my water pressure regulator.


On the top of the regulator is a stem/threaded rod with two nuts on it.

Loosen the bottom nut and that will allow you to turn the stem, which adjusts the pressure.

clockwise usually increases pressue, although I have encountered PRV's (Pressure Reducing Valve) that decreases pressure with a clockwise turn.

When A PRV starts malfuntioning, they often cannot be adjusted and need to be replaced or rebuilt.

As is the case with mostyou can not decrease it...if it gets to high the t&p should come open and drow the pressure with out you doing anything. But just in case post the name and model of you unit and I can give more exact info on it.
