cant lower pressure


Postby morgan2k8 » Tue Dec 02, 2008 8:58 pm

Hi can someone please help me!!

Sunday morning i woke to a freezing cold house, so i put on heating for kids. After 10 mins i had "0-0.5" pressure and i was told by my landlord that if that happens to turn a specific dial underneath boiler till the pressure gets to "1.5-2.0", which i did then turned it off but the pressure kept raiseing till it hit "4" and then a loud noise came from boiler :?
Its now stuck at "3" with a wining noise and when i turn taps on and off i get a really load clanging and shaking from boiler and radiator!
And through the night it could be silent for an hour or 2 then it will start banging again till i turn tap on and turn it back off slowly.

PLEASE HELP I NEED SLEEP!!

Thanks John

Hi Morgan,

Your filling loop valve is still on IMHO
The noise and the water is from the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV)
Please disconnect the braided hose on the filling loop, some water, be prepared, move the valve a little to stop it quick.
