Mixer tap not working

Postby wine » Wed Feb 16, 2011 12:29 pm

I have just installed a basin with mixer tap.

I tried the tap and some water came out, now it just comes out in drips, both hot & cold.

I know the supply is OK, as I put a branch off the cold for the supply to the cistern, and that fills up as normal.

Is it a duff tap, or is there something else I could try?

I've installed many taps before, this is the first time i've had this problem.

Thanks for any help.

Simply Build It

Possibly an air lock especially if you drained down to fit the tap.
