    So the pressure in my boiler has been at around 0.3-0.5 for a few weeks and this morning I woke up to it being 0.
    I have a BetaCom2 24 boiler and I can’t seem to see 2 valves but I’m not sure in general what to look for. My landlord has been fobbing me off and won’t help and now I’ve got no heating or hot water and just want some help.

    Look for a silver coloured flexible hose ,it may be lower than your picture shows . Show a pic lower down ,of the pipes under boiler.

    That's it. On right hand end there is a valve ,with a slot for a screwdriver in its middle. At the moment the slot is horizontal ,put a screwdriver in the slot and turn till the slot is vertical.pressure should increase ,when it reaches 1 bar ,turn it back to perfectly horizontal ... EXACTLY as it was originally.
