    We had our heating system replaced in March with a combi boiler system. It's all been working fine. About 9 weeks ago, I replaced a faulty kitchen tap with a mixer. Again, it's all been working fine until now.

    This morning, when running the hot water past a certain strength, there is now a THUD noise followed by a drop in pressure. Turning the tap off and on again tends to reset the pressure until it gets to a similar strength and then THUD it drops again.

    The other taps in the house seem to be working fine.



    Does anyone have any ideas? Air lock? Faulty tap?

    Thanks :)

    doubt that it is a boiler problem , think it is a tap problem, but some Intergas experts on here, change your post title and add Intergas to it and you will get theire attention
