    The pressure gauge on our boiler is on 0 and the system needs re-pressurising. We moved in to the house a few months ago and had no manual or pressure key, but after having watched several YouTube videos for this model of boiler, it looks as though none are quite the same!

    I can't see a place where a key would go in and there is no valve to let more water in to the system... I have tried to take a clear picture of the bottom of the boiler - does anyone have any advice as to how this system is re-pressurised?

    Any help would be much appreciated as I would rather not have to call someone out to do what is a simple job with any other boiler!

    Thanks in advance,

    Henning

    Somewhere near the boiler you will see a silver braided flexible hose with one or two taps/levers at each end of it, find that, open taps to repressurise boiler.

    I have a worcesterbosch Greenstar 30si and it doesn't have a braided hose filling loop, it's plumbed in with a blue button to repressurise, visible when you take bottom cover off 16358839678626228857019157160885.jpg

    Thanks for this - I was unable to find a blue valve underneath, but I have taken some of the plasterboard off around it and caught a glimpse of some braided pipe further down.

    I think it's a weekend job as accessing it may be tricky!

    Thanks again,

    Henning
