Hi, the reason that a boilers pressure increases is that the pressure vessel in the boiler that takes up the expanded heated water has gone flat and needs recharging /pumping up, or it has torn and needs replacing. .

The problem with the boiler according to BRITISH GAS was the boiler pressure was to high.

Ok , well if was filled up too much then the best way to release some is to bleed some water into a pot from the bleed valve using a radiator bleed tool/key u til the pressure drops to 1.2 ish
