I read that info before and understand how to set pressure for the system. But either nobody understands what I am asking or I dont understand. I dont get the question answered. My question is how much is water weight pressure not actual inlet water pressure at the boiler gauge? Like I said I adjusted the domestic water inlet right down to nothing and there is still cold water pressure at the gauge. I set the bladder properly and I cant get the cold water pressure below 18psi. I want it to be 8 psi. My highest baseboard heat is 8 feet. I put 4 psi in my bladder and I want to set the cold water to 8 psi. Just wont do it, unless the regulator is turned right off. Is it possible for a 5 year old regulator to go bad with city water? And it just wont let me regulate down that low? Just for reference I replaced the gauge on the boiler to make sure that wasnt giving me false readings.
