Customer Question
I have a unica...

I have a unica HE boiler , I live on my own and am not very confident with how to re pressurise the water . looked at many videos but they are different systems. I can not afford an engineer in for something so simple . HELP !!!

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

Only a few days and it was about 2rs ago it needed doing last... so I don't think ther is a leak

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

Yes

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

Just how to pressurise my system up to 1.5 pls
