    Hi, Im hoping someone can help my boiler pressure keeps dropping i fill it back up and it last about a week then goes back into the red zone. Ive had a look and their seems to be a little leak on the white plastic pipe thats similar to in the photo, the leak seems like it starts in the actual boiler so above what you can see in the picture. Can someone tell me what this pipe is and if i could potentially fix it myself.

    Cheers

    And it's not leaking... It's draining... As it should!

    Look for other threads regarding system losing pressure and faulty PRV... There's plenty of topics about it!

    Sounds like it's leaking to me. The way I read the op is that something is leaking further up in the boiler and running onto the condensate pipe
