I have done what you have suggested and will let you know tomorrow if it has worked. Thank you. John
Kindly ignore this post as the system has locked the post to me, by responding in this way it will allow you to continue your conversation with Toby. Many thanks.
I'm afraid that the gauge has crept up to about 2.5 bar and possibly higher as it has released more water. Any other suggestions?
I hope this is getting to you, as another expert has come through. Unfortunately the gauge is creeping up to 2.5 bar or higher and has released water. Any other suggestions?
Hi , what was the pressure of the expansion vessel? Have you added any new radiators or enlarged the system somehow?
Hi, No, I have not added anything new, it was just that the bladder in the original tank must have ruptured, probably with age, (the system is more than ten years old). I put the pressure at about 18 psi (just under 1.4 bar) I was a bit concerned at putting it any higher as the manual says 1 bar.
Is it possible to talk to you on the phone?
I have sent a phone offer to you . I am finding hard to find your boiler manual . could you recheck the moidel and look for the GC number on its data badge , thanks
Good morning Toby,
I cannot find a 'GC' number but I have the following:
Aqua 40 CE 0049 dir 92/42 CEE
I have just looked for a manual, but each time I put in Solo Duetto Aqua manual in Google (mine has that on the front) it comes up with internal error. I tried www.sime.it and went into products and then followed leads and there is a manual for aqua 40 (various types) mine seems more like an Aqua OF but the drawings in info are not exactly the same.
Regarding the phone help, are you on a land-line number? It makes a difference to me as 08 numbers and mobiles cost me a fortune from France.
Hi, yes the central heating works fine. One thing I did think about, was that could the water bypass the filler valve and make the pressure higher? I am a retired motor mechanic and have used the old trick of listening through a screwdriver but cannot hear any water going through.
Sorry I did not get back to you, I am having difficulty in locating the valve that I need, I can get a 3/4 non return one which is much too large with reducers, but not a 3/8. I will come back to you when I have some more news. John
No probs John.
