    If the HeatSlave is a combi, the pressure gauge tells you the Central
    Heating
    pressure, nothing to do with the hot water, which is at mains pressure.
    Ignore
    my email if your system is not combi-based.

    I have the same boiler. The pressure sits about 1.25 - 1.5 bar when not
    in use and rises around 1 bar more when the CH is on. Hot water is mains
    pressure so shouldnt be affected by pressure in CH system.

    Does your hot water always trickle or does this only happen when the CH
    is on?
