Later in the week I busted out the old tub tiles and installed a new set of taps and shower head in the tub along with a new fiberglass tub surround. While doing so I turned off the water to the home and turned on a basement tap to drain the pipes so I didn't have water dribbling everywhere. Again, the bathtub taps now work great and everything, I thought, was rosey.
My problem is that now I have no water pressure in the bathroom taps I had previously replaced. Everything else in the house works just great. The taps run, the toilet flushes, the shower runs.......everything except the set in the bathroom that I replaced last week.
Since I didn't touch them or change anything with them other then change the bathtub taps I suspect there is air in the line somewhere that prohibits water from getting to the bathroom taps. I've tried turning the tap on and leaving it (for a couple of hours actually) and I even tried hooking a shopvac up to the tap, opening them and trying to suck the water up to get the air out of the lines. Again, no luck.
Any ideas what could be going on or how to rectify the situation?
