Do you have a silver flexible pipe under the boiler?

IS there a valve on one or both ends?

there's a valve at both ends to open or close similar to the type fitted when you want to turn off water to an appliance

Ok, turn one on - then turn the other on slowly

You will get a slight whistling - take the pressure up to 1.5 bar and turn them both off again

Once over about 0.5 bar the boiler will fire again

i can hear water going through

XXXXX XXXXX :

Watch the pressure rise and then turn off at 1.5bar

You should have just turned the valve on slowly?

Turn them both off

Lower the pressure by venting a radiator into a tub

Back down to 1.5bar

done
