    Low water pressure in boiler due to broken radiator 12th Apr 18 at 4:32 PM
    Good evening,
    after opening a radiator valve to release air inside, something went wrong and the water pressure reported on the boiler is always lower than normal. Perhaps broken radiator valve, I don't know.
    What could it be and how to solve it?
    Thank you

    You've bled the air from the radiator by the sounds of it a you now need to top up the CH with water via the filling loop until 1 bar is reading on the boiler.

    All presuming it's a combi - refer to manual to see what ideal cold pressure reading should be and how to 'top up' the system.

    HTH

    Almost certainly your boiler model will be on you tube with a video as to how to top up.

    And as Ruski says the manual.

    It's easy to tell if the radiator is broken or not, there will be water pouring out of it.


    isn't it just the case that you bled the radiator and didn't top it up to replace the water that filled the radiator?
