Hi
Have a problem with my hot water bath tap in that
when you undo it hardly any hot water comes out.
Had the same issue with the cold bath tap and it was the spindle which came off but the cold bath tap had its own isolating value so was able to turn off the water to it and fix spindle.

how do i turn the water off to fix the hot water tap ?
I have a combi boiler with on demand water in that when you turn on hot water it fires up If I switch off the boiler cold water still flows out hot water bath tap ?

the cold tap had a isolating value but the hot water bath tap doesn't have one ?
Any help with this greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.

Water will continue to flow through your boiler.....until you turn the mains supply off to the house.

Hmm thats a bummer then!
The chances are it is the mains stopcock.....it may make things easier if you can back off the small hexagon nut where the tap spindle pokes through - thats the gland packing - but the chances are the tap will come free if you can heave on it enough (carefully!)
There may be an isolator for cold water entering the boiler but I tend to leave those be - leaks there are something you can do without!

Check the cold feed conection at the boiler. Very likely to have an isolating valve there.
