    Soakaway Treasure Hunt!

    Worcester 24cdi Boiler

    Thanks for the info!! Now I come to think of it - I did fill the loop with the key a while back and because the boiler is in the loft I forgot all about taking the key back out - perhaps I should take the key out and empty the system? Refill and see what happens?
