I am fitting a Damixa Apollo monobloc tap from B&Q to my sink.
I stupidly lost one of the copper tails for connecting to the water
supply (seem to be a completely non-standard 13mm connector!) - so
decided to just connect it to the cold water supply for now.
Problem is that when I turn on the tap, the water leaks heavily from
the socket where the hot-water connector is to be screwed into.
Is this expected?
If the cold water is at mains pressure and the hot water is coming
from a tank - could this cause cold-water to be forced back into the
