    hi, got home from work yesterday, set the kids bath to run as normal

    turned the bath mixer tap to hot (we have a bosch worcester combi boiler) where the water normally comes out slow but very hot

    anyway the water shot out really fast, which was odd and was quite brown and cold...after a minute the water ran clear again but the water was still really flying out of the tap even when the mixer was turned to hot

    as far as i know nothing has changed, i can reduce the flow on the mixer tap so that it does come out slowly and this does give me hot water

    but why has the pressure suddenly changed, why did the water go briefly brown and should i be worried?

    thanks for any thoughts...Sd

    could have been a blockage which got pushed through, it would explain why your pressure was low and a load of crap came out :)
