If its only that tap and the basin cold is OK then its probably a blockage somewhere ( that means anywhere! ).

If its the basin tap as well then its probably an airlock. Follow instructions in FAQ section to try to fix.

thanks for that it is only my mixer tap and not the basin do you know how i rectify an air lock.
Vety unlikely tto be an airlock if the basin is near the bath. Possibly the washer has come adrift inside the mixer - depends what type it is.

This suggests a blockage on the feed to this tap only. Do you have flexible tap connection pipes? Are they long, maybe the cold one has a kink in it? I came across one of these recently, a 1m long flexi which had kinked under its own weight after being installed badly (old taps at end of bath, new taps at centre of new bath)
Take the side off the bath and have a look :eek:
