Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

What is the pressure on the gauge?

Hi Rick, Pressure is 0
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 9 months ago

Ok then that's why you have a PRO. I need pics of the piping around the boiler to tell you how to bump the pressure back up to 15 psi.

Need pics of all the piping not the gauge

Not at all like my pic. All feed valves no matter the manufacturer have the same basic shape with a sort of bell shaped top. They are also in a water line not directly conected to the boiler like this pressure relief valve. There is one other possibility if you can't find it show me a picture of the expansion tank (see attached, could be different color)
