Bleeding gas boiler for hot water circulation

Hi Everyone,

Hope all are fine and busy as well.

I have two boilers both share the same/common feed valve

if I bleed one boiler than I don't see water bleeding, to get water flow I need to release the feed valve, but will it increase the psi for another boiler?

Can somebody please advise

    They should each have their own feed valve.
    Are the 2 boilers serving the same system?
    What's stopping water from entering the other boiler? Maybe a shut off isn't working.
    Pictures would help.

    Hi Thanks for your reply, it's a two family home, so 1 boiler for first floor, 2nd boiler for 2nd floor.
    so I am not touching boiler 2 at all, I am just trying to bleed boiler 1, when I did that water was not draining out or say it was draining very very slow.
    so to get water drain faster I wanted to release feed valve, but since feed valve is shared by both, my concern is will it feed the water in boiler 2 also, if it happens it will increase the psi of boiler 2...Thanks

    WE are going to need some pictures of your boilers. Try to include the piping and valves.
