    I have been experiencing low water pressure from both hot and cold taps throughout my property. It is all electric no gas and I have a cylinder in the airing cupboard.
    I do not have any instructions on how to repressurise and really struggling to find a solution online that have worked so far, any help would be great!

    I will attach some pics of the cylinder
    Thank you!

    Abbie , your red expansion vessel pressure is spot on , dont do anything with it , thats only for your Heating, its nothing to do with your water pressure.
    I would advise you to get a G3 registered plumber in to check over the cylinder .
    You could also check that your stop tap isn't turned right down

    Building on what Jon has suggested, your cylinder & it's controls and safety devices require servicing EVERY year. If it is not done then you experience the kinds of problems you're suffering with but far more importantly you are compromising your families safety.

    G3 engineer pronto - please.
