Even if it's just for hot water? So I just need to stop the leak and refill the system?
Not very long. I'm having some renovations done and I can see the water coming out from a pipe which was one connected to a radiator. Water is leaking out of the bottom of a valve, so I guess I just need to get this properly capped off?
Where is the PRV generally located?
ahh - OK, I noticed water from an exit pipe near the flue pouring out the other day. I assumed it was coming from the overflow pipe of the water tank in the loft. Will water just pour out every time I attempt to fill up the system?
OK - I'm having a new boiler installed before Christmas so if I just keep on topping up the system till then do you reckon I should be able to get by?
that's OK - I can live with that in the short term. will this damage the already crappy boiler I have?
Absolutely will... I did in my last place and it was great. Many thanks for your help.
