Customer Question

Hi, trying to relressurise a potterton heat max combi, which looks like it needs a rigid loop. However, there's a copper pipe joining the two pipes together so I can't get access.

Is there no braided flexible pipe under the boiler?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for the response. No there isn't. There are three taps, none of which increase the pressure on any combination. The two isolation calves are connected by a copper pipe so when I unscrew the nuts I can't take them off. I wondered whether whoeve fitted it left the copper pipe in the middle in error? The manual says there should be a copper tool to repressurise but it's a new house and we weren't left a tool.

Sorry about the typos - valves instead of calves, obviously.
