    Please help. I moved into a house with a Ferroli F30 combi boiler. It was working fine initially but since 2 months ago it has failed to come on several times despite program settings and it has been due to the pressure being too low. I have managed to get it working by increasing the pressure to about 1.5 and then resetting the system. This trick works for a few days to a couple of weeks and then the pressure will drop and I will have to top it up again.

    I don't mind it doing this but was wondering if the boiler is faulty, if it is on it's last legs and needs changing. If this is a sign it will fail completely soon I will get a new boiler but if not I would prefer to wait a few months and just keep topping it up. Now when I top it up it seems to only last a few days unlike the first time. Am I in serious trouble and do I need a plumber urgetly. I have not deteted any leaks and have the heating on full as the manual advised for winter.

    Please help ad advised. Thanks

    Thanks for reponding.

    I do have one of those but no no water is coming out of there when I check. I have been keepin an eye on it. when should I be looking to see if there is discharge of water? I turned the presssure up the day before and the heating system has been workig fine. If I keep having to refill the boiler up to keep the correct pressure, does that mean there is a leak somewhere along the system?

    It seems the only LED that keeps flashing is the pressure one and it seems like that is the only problem. Should I be getting a new boiler? Someone told me that the air/water "thing" that keeps the pressure has a membrane which is leaking and evetually I will not be able to increase pressure even if I try filling up the boiler. They said it need changing. Does that sound right?
