DIY Repair Guides
Clarion tenants can find out how to do a range of repairs through this section on their website.
This includes how to:
- Switch off your water supply
- Bleed a radiator
- Unblock a drain
- Replace a shower head
If you have no heating and hot water, it may be a loss of water pressure. You can usually tell if this is the case if the pressure needle has dropped, or if your digital display is flashing to indicate a drop in pressure. This relatively easy to fix, we recommend:
Visit your boiler brand’s website, to see if they have helpful tutorials and videos about topping up pressure on their systems.
Re-pressurising your boiler means allowing more water to enter the system, from the water mains supply, via the filling loop. Filling loops may vary in design, but here’s the basic re-pressurising process:
- Switch off and allow your boiler to cool
- Double-check that both ends of the filling loop are securely attached
- Open both valves, to allow cold mains water into the system (you should hear it)
- Wait for the pressure gauge to read 1.5 bar
- Close both valves, one after the other
- Switch the boiler back on and, if needed, press the reset button
If you’re in any doubt about how to re-pressurise your boiler system, or you’ve already done so according to the guide but are continuing to have pressure problems, call the office on 0208 365 1751.
