Spurting water from taps and shower head

Postby gabbyhayes » Thu Apr 16, 2009 9:18 am

I have just had an extension done to my house, were 75% of the plumbing system had been changed. They use Speedfit pipes and push-fit fitting etc, also during this re-plumb a new boiler was installed, this being a condensing combi-boiler. My problem is every now and again my taps spurt out a small amount of water, probably enough to fill at least an egg cup, the taps fitted are different types, mixer taps and conventional ones, but also the shower head does it too.
I have had the builders back and they say there in nothing that can be done, but I feel that there is a problem somewhere, and it is so annoying. Can anyone advise please.

Simply Build It

Perhaps you should get a heating engineer or plumber to assess the problem. This is a case of someone not knowing what they are doing.

It is not easy to give advice, particularly with the limited information you have given.
