Playing with my taps?

Hi guys, I'm changing the tap in my kitchen sink.

Now, once I've turned off the mains, is it possible to remove the water supply to the taps that is under the sink (picture below) and somehow 'cap' it off so I can turn the water back on and use the water supply in the bathroom for a short while.

In other words, what do I need to stop water gushing out of the pipes under the sink...is it some sort of valve?

You already have valves fitted. Turn the 2 screws on the silver flexible pipes 90 degrees, this should turn the water off to the taps. Id check before dismantling though to be safe!

op - have you managed to embed your new ikea sink as indicated on another post somewhere recently? If so, wouldn't mind a picture to see how you got on.

Leave attractivebrunette alone. "She" (if it is a she, since that photo of "her" on "her" profile looks suspiciously unreal if you look closely) has learnt how to do a lot of things through these forums. Don't make the issues more complicated than they need be, just yet.
