Hi Ive got an...

Hi Ive got an old baxi instant 80HE. Losing pressure on DHW setting

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

The over flow pipe releases water when pressure is above 0.5bar intermittent issue becoming more frequent with time

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

4 months. What do you mean severe/?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes im not entering the combustion chamber though due to regs nor work on the gas system at all

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No i think thats all. The two red light on the model come on but I've researched that and it is meant to indicate a low pressure fault.
