    Hi, We need to presurise our Vaillant Ecotec 24, but for some reason there doesn't seem to be a handle on the valve? Any tips on how we can presurise? I've posted a picture for reference.

    You need a flat bladed screwdriver....valve at each end by the look of it.
    Post close ups to be sure.

    Ah that makes sense, thanks!. I tried a flathead and I could turn the bottom valve and nothing happened but I couldn't turn the top one. Possibly because the thread is a bit mangled. Here's some closer photos. Any tips on handling a slightly butchered valve, also welcome! PXL_20210325_153422910.PORTRAIT.jpg PXL_20210325_153415440.PORTRAIT.jpg

    Both need to turn...make sure they are left Exactly at right angles to the pipe.
