Q: Low water pressure Hello, Yesterday we replaced our bath taps, and also the sink ones using a conversion kit, in the bathroom upstairs. We drained the water tank (stored cold in the roof and stored hot upstairs fed from the stored cold tank) by tying up the ball cock, we did the work and then released the ball cock and filled up the tank again. Since this the cold water has barely no pressure. At first for about 2 seconds it's not too bad, but then within 30 seconds it trickles out to nothing - this is the same for sink toilet and bath. It doesn't splutter like there is trapped air in the system ? Perhaps something in the tank got into the cold water supply pipe and is causing a blockage ?? If so how can we rectify this, or what else might be the cause and solution ? Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks Christine -- "Christine Orme" Reply (Ref:0267)
