    Low water pressure on boiler

    Heating Engineers

    How prone are heat only boilers to low water pressure issues particularly with showers and flow issues? Is this a common problem with this type of boiler? If so, how can I avoid this issue? I’d like a heat only boiler but I’m concerned about water pressure and flow problems.

    "Your losing pressure for a reason either rad valves letting by weeping or trv heads leaking could even be the prv letting off because pressurising could be a split in the coil in the hot water cylinder"

    "it is not the boiler that controls water presure it is the type of system open vented relies on hight and pipework from tanks in loft normeley and unvented witch can be controled and balanced"

    "If you have a combi low pressure all depends on ur mains pressure if you have a tank fed system it all depends on the distance between header tank and top of cylinder. Should it be poor on tank fed a booster pump is a good result"
