Hi all.

Just removed a radiator for some DIY.

Boiler pressure has dropped and I can’t seem to repressure it.

I’ve looked at videos of this model and they typically have a pressure loop (hose) or another similar systems that mine does not seem to have. (Just moved into this property).

I’ve tried combinations and can’t seem to get it to work? Could anyone point out the two I should turn?

If this does not work what else can do?

Model: Alpha E-Tec 28

Radiator ends incase this somehow helps an answer that I’ve isolated a pipe I shouldn’t

(Novice but thought this would be a simple job!)

Looks as if your filling loop should go here:

It may be hiding somewhere out of reach - may be on top of the boiler?
 
Found the hose on top of the boiler…..!

But. I think what I need to attach too is blanked?

Just posted below I found my hose!

Is it as simple as take them blanks off, attach and then try?
Yep, make sure the valves are closed first before removing the blanks! :)

...and just checked your new photo - they are closed!

Thank you.

Majorly novice question…once repressured should I remove the hose and fit blanks again?

It's probably best to - with the filling loop removed, there is no possibility of C/H water backfeeding into, and contaminating the mains.
Check valves can fail.
