Some cold water taps very poor pressure.

Got an issue here. house has central heating. I know very little about the house.

I emptied the cold water tank a couple of days ago. I have had a plumber and central heating engineer round, now I have noticed something.

The cold water tap in the en suite, toilet in en suite, shower in en suite all have very very poor cold water pressure. The cold taps in kitchen, other two toilets and bathroom are roaring with pressure.

The hot water in the en suite has a magnificient amount of pressure.

I should also add the external tap has no water coming out at all - I know this works as I tested it when viewing the house.

if you drained the tank the ensuite probably has an airlock in the pipework
so giving restricted flow.

the external tap may of been isolated inside.
If it's got an airlock in it, should I try connection the hot tap to the cold tap via small cut of hose pipe and force the much high pressured hot water up the cold tap?

I am concerned about draining the cold tank as this caused me to have issues with central heating.

OMG this is so complicated :oops:
