No theres no tube underneath and a cylinder for what?
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Engineer replied 7 months ago
Sometimes a combi is fitted to supply just the kitchen and a cylinder to supply the rest of the house.
Can you take a picture of under the boiler and one pointing upwards underneath.
There will be a filling loop somewhere.

Ok, not there.
Try further down on the pipework - I have see it in the back of the cupboard before.

Theres nothing under that its built into the wall
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Engineer replied 7 months ago
Sorry, but it will be somewhere.
Is there anywhere you have another gauge fitted - the idea is that when you refill you need sight of the system gauge on the boiler or an additional one fitted at the fill point if remote.
