Hot water system

Postby Alliance » Wed Jul 30, 2008 10:01 am

I turned off the hot water to change a sink. When it was turned off again one basin in the house had no hot water. I guessed it was an air blockage so have turned off the supply, opened the taps and turned the supply back on. Any other ideas?

Simply Build It

If it is an airlock, you can backfill using a piece of hose - by holding over the cold and hot tap.

Is it just the basin where there's no water ?

Ball valve stuck ? gate valve sheered off ??
