I need some urgent advice!
I live in a flat and have a new warm air system with a direct
combination cylinder for the hot water. Cold water is mains fed - I
think all this is correct but I am totally non-technical!
I am having work done by a tradesman and I need your advice to make
sure I am not getting taken for a ride as I am not happy with what he
He installed for me 2 new basins in the bathroom and bedroom and a
kitchen sink. All of them have mixer taps which I bought and selected
ones for low pressure systems - except the kitchen one which was
supplied by my guy and I don't know what spec. that one is. The bath
is the original one with seperate taps.
The problem is that the hot water flow is terrible(cold is excellent).
The two basins are pretty dreadful and the kitchen one virtally
non-existant. The hot bath tap, however, is very good indeed! This is
the only appliance which has a. original pipework not touched by my
guy and b. single taps. Therefore I am struggling to discover the true
cause of the problem.
I have been told by someone else that flexi-hose is very narrow and
may cause the problem. this has been used on the sinks my guy has put
in. My guy said the only way to sort it out is to put a megaflo system
in which will cost a small fortune and it seems silly to do this just
for the sake of 3 taps! I guess this will increase pressure of water
but not the amount coming out - am I right?
Can anyone suggest what the problem might be or what to do? All I can
think now is that my guy has done the wrong piping and may have
supplied an unsuitable kitchen tap or I might have to ditch my new
sinks and taps and invest in new ones without mixers! That would be
very costly too! I can't do anything about the head of water as I live
in a flat and there's no room.
