Andrew Smith :

Are you able to bleed a radiator into a bowl to bring the pressure down?

JACUSTOMER-q5prh1sm- :

I have bled all radiators, the boiler is still leaking, I have also turned all valves to and from the boiler, the pressure goes down after 30 minutes but when I turn the cold feed on the boiler leaks.

Andrew Smith :

Are you running out of the PRV outside?
