    Hello all,

    Came home this evening to discover my heating wouldn't turn on, and I can't get any hot water either.

    I noticed I have an F1 - "Low Water Pressure" fault displaying on the boiler.

    I've followed the instructions in the manual, and in other threads in this forum, opened the blue & black valves, but the pressure gauge doesn't seem to move at all when I do this... Any other suggestions? It's pretty damn cold! :willy_nilly:

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide :)

    boiler needs water topping up mate should read 1 on the gauge on the left had side under boiler you need to top it up using the filling loop (looks like a flexi tap connector):shades_smile:

    But the filling loop was attached already, all I need to do is open both valves surely? But the gauge doesn't move at all.

    Since there are 2 valves , 1 may have been already on
    ( Not how it should be left - but its fashonable not to Follow Instructions ..these days )

    Have it nice and quiet , then may be able to hear start of water flow , Don't over do that guage !

    some filling loops have a shut off at both ends usualy sloted screw type make sure both are open to allow the water through

    I have had the plastic lever turn but not turn the brass part as the plastic was rounded off by a previous wrecker!!!!

    Argh, still nothing. The flat I stay in has the filling loop already set up, with instructions from the property builder for fixing the water pressure. All that should need to be done is to turn the blue & black valves. Nothing happens, it doesn't even sound or feel like there is water moving inside the loop.

    Thanks for suggestions so far guys, I may be stumped on this one :-S

    is the filling loop integral on this boiler ? if not dont understand why you are turning BLUE valve ? is this not the boiler cold main isolation valve or ch return valve ?
    loops usually have 2 black handled valves :)

    I have had 3 filling loops seize up on these boilers....if you can't get it to fill as per instructions call ideal as it should still be on warranty.

    It's still within warranty with the builders too, will give customer services a call tomorrow and hopefully they can send someone round to take a look.

    The valves are in the closed position at the moment

    Does your hat tap work at the moment?

    is the blue tap at the back on ? is there water out of hot taps ?
  16. DockOfTheBay

    DockOfTheBay Guest

    Yes, but when I turn them, still nothing happens.

    Hat tap??
  17. SimonJohns

    SimonJohns Trusted GSR

    Hot tap. Sorry

    DockOfTheBay Guest

    Oops, sorry, you mean hot tap, just clicked when dancinplumba asked the same thing. Yes, there is water coming out of the hot taps.

    Think there must be another valve on the water side of the filling loop...you should be able to hear water flowing especially when you crack it open just a little(as long as you have pressure)
  20. SimonJohns

    SimonJohns Trusted GSR

    Open both valves

    Give the one on the right of the picture, a technical tap!

    This may free up a stuck NRV inside the fittings

    No luck :-S

    Wasted 2 hours on this tonight, may just have to give up for today. Can't understand why no water seems to be going into the loop. It doesn't sound/feel like there is anyway. Will let you guys know the solution, if indeed there is one tomorrow... Hope so anyway.

    Thanks again regardless.

    Just to let you know (mainly because I hate searching for an answer online only to find it ALMOST ends with a solution...) that one of the valves in the filling loop wasn't allowing water to pass through. This was replaced and the issue is now resolved.

    Thanks again all for the great response - much appreciated.
