Hi can someone please point me in the right dirrection .

I take it i have to release out some water .If so how should i do thid i have tried by releasing some water from a radiator but still the gauge does not move .

Hi Jono,

Do as you said - let some more water out a rad - then switch boiler back on, it won't blow up, the guage may have stuck. Any over pressure - the water will be dumped outside via the PRV.
