How to isolate a tap?

Postby mivec » Mon Feb 15, 2010 1:19 pm

I have a pressurised hot water sytem and want to change the shower and taps. There are no isolator valves fitted so is there any way of isolating these fittings on such a sytem save for turning the mains off or fiiting valves?

mivec,
Turn off the mains, depressurise the system and fit service valves at either strategic positions or adjacent to every tap/shower you replace.
