Fig. 1
2. With the system cold and the boiler not operating the
pressure should be at least 0.5 bar. During operation the
pressure should not exceed 2.5 bar, and will normally be
between 1.0 and 2.0 (Fig. 1).

2. Look at the boiler from underneath. There will be two taps
at the end of copper pipes, one with a blanking cap on the
end. Do not operate these taps yet.
3. Your installer will have left a metal braided hose (the ‘filling
loop’) with you for safe keeping.

4. This loop MUST be connected to the taps. Remove the
blanking cap and set aside.
5. Connect the loop to the taps with the wing nuts. These
should be hand tightened.
Wing Nut
6. Carefully open the handles on both taps and check the
boiler pressure gauge. Once the needle on the gauge is
above the 0.5 mark both taps can be closed.
7. Undo the two wing nuts, remove the loop and refit the
blanking cap. Put the loop in a safe place for future use.

* NOTE: The boiler can be operated with a
clearance of 5mm at the right. This is also sufficient
for routine maintenance. However a clearance of
20mm is required if it is necessary to remove the
secondary heat exchanger. This should be considered
when siting the appliance and in the event of any
subsequent alteration in the area of installation.

9. Avoid skin contact when your boiler is in operation, as
some surfaces may get hot e.g. pipework.
10. Ensure that the flue terminal, outside the house,
does not become damaged or obstructed, particularly
by foliage.
11. It is important that the condensate drain system is
not blocked, modified or damaged in any way as this
would affect the operation of your boiler. Your installer
should have insulated any exposed pipework.
