Hot Water Pressure Problem.



Hello All.
I am sorry for the 'shady' description of this problem but I am as yet unaware of the full details. But it's a start !

Mums Flat.
Ideal Isar HE35 Combi Boiler.

Heating working correctly.

Hot Water.
Mum's partner has been doing some 'water works' in the kitchen, changing mixer tap for two 'pressure' individual taps and a new dishwasher has been re-connected.

Called me today.
Stood in the kitchen and he turned the hot tap on, hot tap spat, the boiler 'kicked in' and the pressure was a mere dribble after 5 Sec's. :eek:

After turning taps randomly on/off pressure seems to range from a dribble to a drip !
Mains pressure is fine.
Boiler DHW gauge shows 2 Bar ???

Any idea's where the pressure loss may be please ?

I will be sorting someone to do the works as I 'don't do' plumbing , but would appreciate a heads up as me Mum's a tad old to clamber in and out the bath when the shower(H&C water feed,) is a bit easier.

Many thanks for any help.
