    Hi all,

    Some great info on this forum. I need help repressuring an Ideal Independent Combi 30. Pressure has dipped below 1 and we have intermittent hot water that trickles out the taps.

    I understand that I need to turn the valves located on the flilling loop, however, I can't seem to find them...

    I've attached some photos of the pipes under the combi boiler, and also some at the bottom of my sink which is where I assume some of the pipes go. There is a mesh pipe that looks similar to a filling loop but that links to the pipe under the sink..

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Thank you,
    Sam

    Looks like the last picture showing the black handle that is horizontal across the pipe is the one you need to use ( top left in your pic)

    3rd photo, black handle, try turning this, for about 10 seconds, and then check pressure.
