Since March 2023 the boiler has continuously lost pressure dropping to zero, I am topping it up 4+ times a day and still every morning when I wake up the heating hasn’t clicked on as the boiler has zero pressure. My housing association are being useless and dragging their feet, the boiler is 12 years old do not ancient but certainly not new, they usually replace between 20/25 years at the same time as the kitchen.
It is struggling to maintain any heat or produce hot water as it just switches off when it gets to zero, which can happen mid shower! I am so sick of being cold and having lukewarm showers and baths. Sometimes we have no heating at all upstairs as there just isn’t enough pressure to get the hot water to circulate, apparently 🤷🏻♀️.
Things that have been ruled out
- no leak
- not the expansion valve
- not a faulty pressure gauge
- not leaking into the heat exchanger
So anyone that knows anything about boilers what else could it be? Its never the same engineer that comes twice they just go off the notes and refuse to recheck things already been tested.
