    How do I get this tap off?

    Using a standard shower pump for the whole house

    I have a gravity fed system which consists of a cold water storage tank in the loft and a hot water tank on the ground floor in an airing cupboard. The hot water pressure on the ground floor in the kitchen and toilet is decent, which is expected as the water has a longer drop from the loft. On...

    Where to buy 3/4" BSP quarter turn ceramic tap glands?

    Screwfix, Wickes and Toolstation only sell 1/2" glands. My old shower mixer tap is dripping, but it's 3/4". Why does nobody sell them, and what should I do? The only ones I can find from a big retailer are at City plumbing, but they're expensive and it doesn't say whether they have a 20-tooth...

    Hot water stops once it gets up to temperature

    This just started a day or two ago but it got really bad this morning. When I'm running the hot water in the kitchen mixer tap it cuts out once the water gets hot. In order to keep it going you have to turn it on more, but if you leave it it will turn on and off again very rapidly. What should...

    Cold tap low flow rate - only a trickle until 4/5 turns

    The cold tap in the bathroom basin now requires 4/5 turns before the flow is acceptable. 1 turn used to suffice. They're an old style tap similar to the picture below. We live in a hard water area if that has any significance. Any idea how this can be fixed? Thanks in advance for any help.
