Hi, I had to shut off the stop cock and drain the immersion by running the hot water in the kitchen in order to change the bathroom sink taps as there was no shut off valves to the taps or from the immersion. Ever since there has been reduced hot water pressure and it takes longer for the hot water to reach the taps. There is still pressure, the water runs, just not as fast as it used to do. The water does get to temperature out of the taps but takes about 30 seconds ish to do so. Does anyone have any ideas what maybe causing the issue?? Thanks in advance.
Hi shadesuk, If all you have done is to operate the mains stopcock and replace the bathroom taps the most likely cause for the reduced flow is the taps themselves. Did you check the spec of the new taps? Eg minimum operating pressure and is the flow in the kitchen taps reduced? Regards S
Hi shadesuk, If you have a cold water tank fed system the most likely cause is an airlock but it may be that you have sucked debris from the bottom of the tank into the pipe work. Look in the tank to check. Have you checked that the stopcock is fully open? Regards S
