    My Unica 32 HE is slowly dripping from the CH fitting under the boiler and its slowly losing pressure. Looks like it's been dripping for a while now. Are these compression fittings and can I just nip it up a touch to try to seal it or will that likely cause other problems? Any other easy options to avoid draining the system and replacing the fitting? Thanks.

    Sometimes backing the nut off a 1.4 turn and then nipping it back up works if it's an olive/fibre wahser. If it doesn't stop then it's a drain down and wrap/re-washer the fitting.
