Hot water problem

Postby webbyhull » Fri Sep 12, 2008 6:39 pm

hi there

my hot water tap in my kitchen seems to have lost the pressure, both upstairs tap and bath tap are fine however it just trickles out of the kitchen tap.

The water was ok but it seems to have just deveolped like this.

The washing machine hot water is also attacted to the same pipe. To test i unplugged the pipe from the washer and tuerned the valve to see what would happen. THe water came out at its expected speed and got hot very quickly.

Am i right in thinking its an issue with the tap?

Its a mixer tap.

sounds like a seized tap spindle unless you have turned an isolation valve somewhere?
