How to Increase Boiler Pressure and Check Your Pressure Gauge


Hi, I’m Tony Jones from British Gas I’m going to show you how to check your water pressure. Some boilers have a digital display to show the water pressure but this boiler here has a guage which
demonstrates how much water pressure is in the system. Whichever type you have, the pressure should be between 1 and 1.5 bar. If your pressure is below that, what you must do is turn on the two valves below the boiler to increase the pressure back to 1 – 1.5 bar. But you must turn off the tap straight away so you don’t over pressurize the system. Most boilers have thermostats on the front of the boiler. These control the hot
water and heating temperatures for the whole house. If you’re still having problems and
