    Hi, could anyone help to confirm how I re-pressurise my boiler? In the photos attached I think is the filling loop, I'm assuming I need to turn the black valve and then unscrew slightly the screw on the right hand end of the pipe? Down to 0.5 bar and I want to avoid it coming out! Cheers

    Turn the black handle a quarter turn until in line with the pipe and do the same with a screwdriver in the slot of the other valve.

    you dont unscrew anything, you turn the ballofix valve 1/4 turn, "the screw as you call it" then gently open the black lever till the pressure is between 1 and 1.5 Bar when cold then close both valves
