Greenstar 28i Water leaking from AAV

Postby michaelconroy » Wed Apr 06, 2011 11:39 am

After bleeding the radiators the pressure on the boiler dropped below 1 bar. I had to partially refill the boiler. I realised then that water was escaping through the vent hole on the cap of the aav. I tightened the cap to stop the leak. Now I find, when the CH is on, that the water pressure is usually around 2.8 bar, but sometimes exceeds 3 bar.

Does this sound as though I need a new aav?

Should I normally leave the aav open slightly?

Simply Build It

Yes you do need a new auto airvent - but this wont solve pressure problem.

Check combi fill is turned off correctly - could be expansion vessel at fault.
