    Hey guys!

    I'm pretty noob with all boiler associated issues. But I still thought it would be a good idea to bleed the heaters on my own. And so I did, but now I am having trouble restoring the pressure. It is now at 0 and every time I try to increase it to 1 water starts flowing through the tundish until pressure goes back to 0. Even with the pressure at 0 there's water constantly dripping in the tundish.

    Not sure what to do now. Any kind soul out there who can help me?

    Should probably mention that I have a Tribune HE unvented system. :p

    Are you sure you're turning the right valves?

    Pretty sure. I just managed to restore the pressure and is now holding up at 1 bar. But there's still water dripping from the tundish. I'm assuming that's not normal...?

    Can you supply pictures of what you're adjusting to be on the safe side?

    I turned the valve circled in red until the pressure reached 1.
