Hi,

My regular plumber is a good guy but getting reponse from my regular plumber (and the previous one) where I live is rubbish at the best of times. And in the current climate, getting anyone else is proving (understandably) impossible

The valve, circled in white in the attached pic is leaking. Perhaps irt need a new washwer/seal but is it someting that can be done by me/DIY if I turn water off at mains, once pressure has dipped (due to lack of demand, i.e. overnight) to zero, and leak stops. Valve is always set fully open, and is obviously designed so it can be closed during servicing or whatever.

I keep having to periodically repressuriize the system, and keeping it at around 0.5 (usualy it hovers just above 1.0 bar.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice/suggestions
