Baxi Boiler Inset 2 refilling system ?


Postby duncanbbd » Wed Apr 29, 2009 11:29 pm

Hi,
I have drained the system but I am having difficulty re-filling the system

saw this advice on another thread:

[quote]Refilling, there'll be a filling loop on or near the boiler, will probably be a silver braided hose. This is how you refill the system - open the valve and pressurise to 1.0 - 1.5 bar, vent all radiators and keep filling until the radiators are full. When all radiators are full make sure the pressure is between 1.0 and 1.5 bar and turn boiler on - it may need repressurising and radiators venting again to allow any trapped air to escape.[/quote]

I am unsure about the Baxi Inset 2 (back boiler), is it pressurised ? where would the valve's be ? there is nothing visible in or around the gas fire, to suggest that there is valves. it would appear if I have to get behidn the gas fire then I have to disconnect the gas (requiring Corgi engineer out). is this right, I thought it would be more accessible ?

It wont be pressurised - turn on cold supply to tank (in loft probably) and vent all radiators.

At worst - you could backfill the system thru the drainpoint you used?
