George-Allsorts :

To lower the pressure in the system, turn off the boiler, allow the radiators to cool, turn either the bleed screw or the drain cock until the pressure falls to within the green area on the gauge.. When you turn the system back on, if the pressure rises again contact you local heating engineer
