Broseley Pressure Rising

The Broseley Thermo Suprema problems continue. We didn't fire it up as we noticed that the pressure was rising and seemed to be returning to what it was.
On Christmas Day it did. Creeping up from half a bar to just over a full bar. We don't why it has done this or where the half bar of pressure and water vanished to or came back from. We hope Broseley will shed some light on this before we fire her up again.

A qualified engineer recommended by Broseley eventually identified problems with the pump and lack of sealant in the system. SCWS need water tight pipes unlike an unvented system. The system has run well since then and no pressure loss or brown water!
