My cold water supply to the bathroom makes a very loud noise when turned on.
It sound as if there is an air lock.
How can I sort this? Also my water pressure is all over the place if the
cold water is on and I flush the loo the cold water goes to a trickle. Also
if the taps are both on ,say in the bath they trickle until one is turned
What's going on?
I think that we need more information. Is the supply to these fittings from
a storage tank in your house or from the mains? Are the fittings upstairs
with others down below? Has the problem always been there or is it new and
if so has anything changed?
First thoughts are that there will be a burst somewhere. Late at night with
everything turned off listen at the tap or fitting nearest the incoming
supply. Ideally if you know the position of the stop cock place a turn key
on it and listen there.
Radiators (central heating) are on a completely different system from the
domestic plumbing so that would have no effect. Very slim possibility that
in doing a repair the domestic plumbing was damaged and so has a leak. You
can still listen at night and see if you can hear any strange hiss or noise.
What do you mean when you say that the water pressure has changed? Has the
water department or a plumber had cause to shut the water off at your
external stop cock?
