condessing boler pressure gauge


Postby frenchd » Sun Jan 18, 2009 4:01 pm

when drawing off hot water or turning on heating system the gauge drops nearly to zero from its normal setting, this is accompanied by a severe tinny sound in radiators, any suggestions welcomed

What's the boiler make and model ?

With some boilers when the pump runs the pressure gauge drops by about 0.5bar. But theoretically the boiler should go to lock-out when the system pressure drops to between 0 and 0.5 bar.

this morning the system dropped to 0.5 bar and the system failed to come on, the make and model no are Baxi Combi instant 80 he, the ser no is LCH05283913.ABR78.
after adding some water to the system the bar reading rose again and the system started, i can't find any evidence of a leak.
