    Whilst repressurising my boiler, I accidentally adjusted the wrong valve and now I'm not sure whether it should be up or down.

    The valve is a black plastic one and is on the same pipe as the blue one (which you turn to let in water).

    The boiler is a Logic Combi C 24.

    Thanks for your help

    Photo would tell us but If the pressure stopped where you wanted it to, you've got water coming out of your hot tap and your radiators start to get warm when you put the heating on its fine

    valve is in the correct position, as a rule of thumb the lever should follow the direction of flow, but cheap valves the lever turns but the valve doesnt
