How do I add pressure ? The online manual lists this as number 13 , but then doesn't point out where it is....

Thanks

I take it the 13 is the list number not the pressure (-:

The manual is a bit confusing but page 4 shows items 11, 12, and 13 which are the bits mentioned on the commissioning section in respect of filling, it should sort the pressure out automatically apparently, I am sure someone like Mike will be able to confirm this? Link to manual mentioned above: http://www.gledhill-spares.net/documents/EM2000-Iss6.pdf Page 15 section 1.3 deals with and explains the filling mechanism.

Many thanks for the reply. Still not quite sure. I thought it was a simple case of opening the red valve in pic 4.

Adding pressure  Empty red valve

Firstly I am no expert here but for sure the red valve you mention is the safety pressure release valve which prevents dangerously high pressure by automatically dumping water, opening this will just get rid of any remaining pressure (the red knob is really a test facility just to check it works OK rather than it acting as some sort of valve). From the manual it seems that the right angle valve in the last image is the one referred to in the manual i.e. right angled valve. I am sure someone who is more familiar with the unit will confirm or deny this.

Adding pressure  Empty 90 degree ball valve

Post  mmartin on Sun Mar 10, 2019 3:50 am

If you check the manual that I sent the link for on page 28 and 29 item 27 which is the last picture in your post is a 90 degree ball valve which is what is described in the filling instructions on page 23 section 5.

4. Open the incoming stop valve and fill the domestic mains cold and hot water
systems.
5. Open the 90ยบ angle isolating valve provided immediately upstream of the C.A
Valve to fill the appliance/sealed heating system. The whole of the primary sealed
heating system will automatically be filled to 1.0 bar with potable water through
the pressure regulating and CA type backflow prevention valves provided as part
of the ElectraMate 2000. Add inhibitor to the system in the normal way whilst the
system is filling. Once full check the whole of the primary heating and domestic
hot and cold distribution systems for leaks.

It means the one for the house cold water it will already be on. The manual is on about commissioning from scratch of course, hence the comment about making sure the plumbing is completely finished before filling the system. (-:
