Hi guys
I have just moved house and inherited a FER Ferroli Falcon II boiler which is losing pressure. It is just at 0.5 when off and moves up to 1.0 when the heating is on. I need to bleed one of the radiaters but don't want to do this until I know how to up the pressure. There are a number of dials under the boiler but none of these are for the pressure.

Where do I turn the pressure up?

On previous boilers they just had a little dial which you turned slightly and it hissed and the pressure dial went up. I cannot see one on this boiler. Will I need to take the casing off?

I would appreciate some help. Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

I haven't come across such a pipe left in the house. If I buy the pipe what do I then do with it? Where does it go?

it is part of a filling loop kit, with two valves, one side connected to the return pipe and the other to the mains water, and all that in view of the boiler.
