    If the boiler was working fine at 1, get it back to 1.

    Thanks for the fast reply

    only there doesn't seem to be a braided pipe looping the system?

    look for the valves the pipe may not be attached

    when you find them

    then start looking for the pipe ;)

    Looks like the pipe was left off when the boiler was installed. just found it in the bottom of a kitchen unit!!! :oops:

    The valves are sticking out of the wall next to where the bolier is mounted. :oops:

    thanks for your help!!

    lol

    And when the boiler is back to 1, take the braided hose back off; it is supposed to be that way. Only stick it on when you need to top up, trust me, it will save you money.
