***** ***** : Is there a pressure gauge on the boiler?
Customer:

Yes

***** ***** : What is it reading?
Customer:

there are 5 bars between 0 and 1 and it is just touching the second one so i guess 0.4?!

***** ***** : It may not be working due to the low pressure, do you know how to riase the pressure with the filling loop?
Customer:

no

***** ***** : Is there a silver flexible pipe under the boilerr on the pipework?
Customer:

yes

***** ***** : Can you turn on one end and then crack open the other
***** ***** : The water will start whistling in - keep going until the pressure rises to 1.5bar and then turn them both off
***** ***** : The boiler should now fire
Customer:

Say that again please andrew I have a silver u shaped silver flexible pipe with screws in each side. what do you mean?

***** ***** : If there are no taps at each end then you will need a screwdriver to trun the valves.
***** ***** : When the slots are across the pipe then they are off, when they are in line with the pipe they are on
Customer:

no change no whisttling of water still 0.4 bar

***** ***** : Have you turned the valves at both ends?
***** ***** : If that does not work then the filling loop could be faulty
***** ***** : You will need to call someone in the morning to replace it
Customer:
