I have a steady loss of pressure but can't see any sign of leaks what can I do.I can't see how to isolate the boile in case its that,.Is there anything I can do ,my system is quite old apart from the boiler which is two years old ,all the pipes are under a parquet floor.

Check the 15mm copper pipe outside from the pressure relief valve for dripping.

If you cant isolate your boiler, there is not much else you can check apart from obvious looking at all the rad valve joints etc.

such a small loss would indicate a tiny weep around a radiator valve, fairly common as with the heating off the pipework contracts, take the plastic covers off the valves and run your finger around the spindles. check all the compression joints.
