Hot water but no cold water!

Postby may480 » Tue Nov 16, 2021 9:55 pm

Hi, I've just bought and moved into a new flat and there is hot water but no cold water in either sink or to flush the toilet. The isolation valves all seem to be pointing to the "on" position, and I'm assured there are no water issues in the rest of the building. There is a hot and cold tap next to the boiler which seems to control the water flow - the cold tap was stuck at first; It's now turning after using a wrench and WD40 but still no cold water. Any ideas? A plumber has quoted £150 to sort it out which sounds a lot for what may be a very simple issue (I know very little about plumbing or DIY so could be overlooking something obvious!) Thank you for any help!
