I am having to go up and down stairs.
It is on 2.6 and no lights are on (after turning off water).
Shall I wait for reply? or was that it?
Now what? Is that it? Am I supposed to rate the answer, and call it a day?
I have no idea what that is?
I shall have to go down again to look at the boiler.
Ah! I will have to go outside.
It is now 2.2 with yellow light on.
It appears to be dry outside. Now 2.3.
What shall I do until next week when people start work again? Leave hot water switched off?
It is still 2.3.... seems to be holding pressure. Shall I just leave the hot water off so that I can have heat?
Well, I haven't switched off the hot water until you told me to.
I am not sure what counts as rapid. It doesn't take a long time to rise or fall, (depending on whether I'm trying to raise or lower it).
Sorry, you have lost me. I'm a 65 woman without much skill in the machine dept.
I wondered why the heating hadn't come on in the morning and found it was on zero. I then mucked about with the tap. (And now I can't remember whether it is normally at 12 or 3).
. When I turn the tap is that what I'm doing? Turning the filling point on and off?. OK. I will turn on the water again and see what happens.
1) I didn't touch the water to the house, just switched off the hot water on the boiler. (2) The tap is at right angles to the pipe; the hot water is on; the number is ***** and didn't change over a minute.
And if it rises or falls?
That takes me to places I've never been....bleeding a radiator into a bowl seems challenging. I'm not sure I have a bleeder key. Please tell me again.....should the tap be at right angles to the pipe or parallel? If the pressure is low (or high) which way do I turn the tap. Sorry I'm not much good at this.
And to bring the pressure down.... can I do anything with the boiler or does it have to be bleeding a radiator?
Oh dear. I turned the tap and it shot up to 2.8. I've switched off hot water and heating, and will hope it goes down. When it gets to 1.5 I shall switch on heating again. I need someone who knows what they are doing.
Right. What seems to be happening is that when the heating is off, the pressure gradually drops. My guess is that it eventually hits zero. What does this mean and what do I do?
1) Right. I was waiting until it reached 1.5 before turning heating on again. (2) So I need a plumber or heating engineer. Can I last out until Monday when people are back at work? (3) should I go round the house looking for a leak by each rad? and look outside again in daylight (4) no damage even it goes up to 3.5?
