We've recently had a new boiler installed and due to removing rads etc the pressure has dropped to zero.

I obviously need to repressurise the system but I can't work out how to do it.

The manual just talks about a filling loop but I can't even work out where I would connect one.

This is the boiler:

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Follow the cold water supply pipe into the boiler and look for a flexible hose from that into the boiler. There should be a tap at each end.

The flexible hose on the first picture looks promising, look at the other end of the flexible hose. Also the outlet from the pressure relief valve needs a pipe to divert any discharge from the boiler case.

Kon the ex vessel there are two flexisthe thicker one leads to a fitting with a tap turn it upwards till the pressure is at 1 1/2 bar that should do it but if you get the pressure up and it don't start then the thin flexible pipe is blocked with crap at the prv end a common fault if system not flushed before installation.bob

take the front cover off. the filling loop is there above the burner to the right.

Read your manual and on page 6/7 it shows you colour pictures of what you are looking for.
