Hi guys,

I moved in to a new (to me) house not so long ago, and have had a bit of an issue recently.

When the heating (it seems) has been off for a while, when the boiler fires back up, there is a small puddle of water under it, but that is the only time it leaks, and has just started doing it.

I checked the pressure of the central heating, and it is only at 1 bar when hot (not sure of cold), and the red needle is also set at 1 bar......is this the correct pressure?

There is an unvented hot water tank, which is also heated by the same boiler - but there doesn't look like there is anything on there to check pressure wise.

The boiler is a Potterton Promax HE.

My main question is, could the low heating pressure be the cause for the boiler occasionally dumping some water?



Thanks a lot

The pressure when cold should be whatever the red needle is set to. 1 bar would be typical.

No, it's totally unrelated to pressure.
