Bolier pressure?

Hi all,
I've just noticed my boiler pressure is at 0, so I've turned it off. I'm sure its because its got no water in it but I dont know how to top it up..

Can anyone explain how? its a Baxi, and I can see the crome loop pipe with the butterfly valve on one end and a normal valve on the other.....thats as far as I have got.

any help greatly appreciated. Its freezin'

Ayuh,.... I'm not familiar with your system,...
Boilers are fed water from your domestic water supply somewhere...
There should be a pressure reducing valve at that point,...
It's probably pugged up,... Some are cleanable,+ others have to be replaced.....

Generally speaking,... You want 12psi water pressure......

Bolier pressure?

Is this steam or hot water? The "chrome loop pipe" has me thinking it's steam.
