As I live alone and am totally clueless about plumbing, I recently got a local handyman to do a couple of plumbing jobs for me. Nothing complicated, just a repair to the toilet and a new washer on the kitchen mixer tap.
He did the work and I am happy with that. But when he left, the water pressure didn't seem quite as strong as it was previously. So I turned the stopcock a little more open (not fully). The pressure is now fine.
Was it ok to do this? I only ask because when he was here, he asked what kind of boiler I had before he turned the stopcock back on. Could I have turned it on too far?
