    HI there,
    From what my repair man told me when my boiler kept losing pressure was that the seal had come away or perished and needed replacing. This is probably what has happened to yours

    Surely it could be the pressure release valve by passing?-what will replacing filling loop do? just asking, not trying to be clever.

    have re-pressurised it but need to keep the filling cap on to stop it losing water.
    I think that means the filling loop. Maybe SCRIBES could confirm?

    Constantly topping up a system will do it no good

    I have same problem with Vokera boiler. What long term damage does topping up do? Still waiting for an engineer to come out and toppping up twice a day. Have researched this and common theme seems to be problems with expansion vessel or pressure relief valve.
    Thanks BB
