    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Fixed it! So decided to go back over my work with the bath taps as that's when this issue started. Found this nut which I had not touched to be a little loose. Not leaking water (did have a stain underneath so had leaked a bit) but if I wiggled the taps it opened up and water did come out of...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Thanks I only replaced the valve in the bath mixer. It’s horizontal so nothing fell in as I swapped it and the bath tap seems to work ok since. Reason for swapping the valve was poor flow there too, but I’ve had that in the past with these valves and keep a stock. New one seemed to help sort...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Ok thank you Seems it must be a physical obstruction in the run, as all valves are replaced etc. Of course the pipework is under the nice fitted flooring and in the wall behind tiles. House is a 2012 'new build' so has plastic for the main runs, joined to regular size 15mm? copper pipes which...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Hi, managed to get a quick look today. There is definitely an issue on the line in the bathroom for this sink and toilet. I am getting a gentle 4 litres per minute from the tap line. The equivalent basin tap line in the other bathroom delivered fiercely 7 litres in 30 seconds! What next...

    Ok thanks I’ll try to confirm that next. What’s a typical amount? Will a Bucket be sufficient usually for the catch test?

    I replaced the tap internal valve first and no change. Tap body is totally clear and isn’t old as replaced it last year. Pressure from the flexi wasn’t what I would call strong, but free flowing. Replacement flexi same. No muck came out whilst running it this way but tap performance did improve...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. I removed the filler filter for the toilet and cleared it. Barely anything obstructing. The feed pipe flowed ok in to a bowl too, and isolating the toilet makes no appreciable difference to basin tap performance. Toilet fill is still slowish, but not such a big issue...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    My thoughts were that it is perhaps debris in the pipe to the sink. I completely removed the isolators, checked them and replaced the one to the sink though. I even ran the open pipes for a while and no muck came out. I'd also have thought that the connecting of hoses and using a vac on the...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Ok so lots of further investigation today. Removed the toilet supply flexihose and separate isolator valve to the toilet and checked for blockages. Also pulled the in the line filter to check for debris. Nothing much to speak of there. Ran the flexi in to a bowl and water running freely...

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Whilst investigating this evening. The toilet hisses and gargles a bit when I turn the tap in the basin on/off. Is this of significance? One vid on YouTube showed an in-line filter at the base of the toilet filling valve. Is there a chance this is blocked and causing the issues?

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    Ok that’ll be tomorrow’s job then. Will be scary for me as I’ll be taking it off at the copper pipe as it comes out of the wall. There’s an integrated flexi with isolator from that to the problem tap. Seems odd to me that the toilet is also slow.

    Trickle from bathroom sink cold tap need help please

    There are. However that wasn’t touched when I did the other work and this tap failed without them being messed with. I used the isolator under basin today to strip tap and replace inner valve. Also then to run it with no valve. Still the flow was minimal. Turning the isolator on and off seems to...

    Having read a few other threads, my next attempt has been attaching a wet vac to the offending tap. It pulled a tank full on the vac, but no change to the flow on the tap.

    With both service/isolator valves open for basin and toilet, the basin cold trickles as does the toilet. Toilet speeds up a bit with basin tap or isolator off. Tried various combos with bath also on/off and no change.

    The bath and shower next in line work perfectly, so not sure what more I can check?

    Meant to add, I took tap internal valve out completely and opened the isolator. Risky I know but was desperate. Still only trickled out.
