    Have a downstairs bathroom, which i am in the process of pulling out. Coming down from my sealing is two 22mm pipes (hot and cold) leading to my bath and sink. Where do i switch the water off from, somebody has mentioned that there should be a hot and cold tap in the airing cupboard where the cylinder is. I have looked in there and there are two red taps, would be grateful if anyone can tell me if these are the correct taps. thanks in advance

    try tuning both valves off, then turn on bath taps and see if flow stops.

    i have attempted to switch these taps off but they are not budging, i don't want to force them with a spanner in case i totally knacker them. Can i turn the main stop cock off and drain the system that way, if i did this would i need to turn off my boiler. I only want to put a pushfit on which is a two minute job.

    turn it off to be on the safe side if your going to drain down anyway hey not change the gate valves as well :idea:

    might be easier freezing it ;)
