    I started a thread about my boiler losing pressure, can't find any obvious leaks in the house (although I appreciate that doesn't mean there isn't one). Engineer came out and said there are no leaks on the boiler.

    I've lifted the top of the boiler off and there is water dripping very quickly from a join in the pipes, does this mean anything, surely water shouldn't be dripping anywhere inside the boiler?

    Here's a picture of where the water is dripping from... it's the top of the boiler.

    That looks like a leak to me. But then I am not a boiler engineer

    Call him back out and ask him why thats wet. Or just try a diff engineer this time.

    the wet pipe in the pic is the DHW mains water inlet, it has nothing to do with your pressure loss.

    Thanks... I was hoping I'd located the problem :(

    The engineer is here now and he's now saying the expansion vessel is full of water ?

    I'm really hoping he's located the issue, I'd rather the pressure loss be a problem with the boiler rather than a leak god knows where in the house!
