    I wonder if any one can help me. I live in a rented house. I went to run my children a bath tonight I turned on hot tap and heard a screeching sound coming from kitchen downstairs and the sound of water.
    I went down stairs to check and the hot tap in kitchen was screeching and water was coming out of hot tap even though it was turned off.
    When I turn off bath hot tap up stairs hot kitchen tap down stairs stops screeching and water stops coming out. But as soon as I turn bath tap back on kitchen tap starts screeching again and water comes out again.
    What could be the problems. And how can I fix. It seem very odd.

    I don't know if it is relevent but thought I should mention we have had some problems with heating system loosing pressure. It was fixed but a month ago we had boiler serviced and day after boiler lost pressure and had to be re pressurized.

    We have a combi solar power boiler. Dont know if this helps

    Any advice much appreciated

    Thanks in advance.

    Bath and sink taps in bathroom upstairs are mixer taps. We have a second bathroom \wetroom downstairs that has small sink that has mixer tap. Kitchen sink has 2 separate taps. Hope this helps thanks again.

    I came to this forum to try and get help and all I get is abuse and name calling which I find offensive. I know it sounds an almost impossible problem but it is happening and just wanted advice as to how to fix problem. I would have been more than happy to record a video and upload to YouTube so you can see what is happening for you self if you had asked but instead I just get called names.

    Well I Wont be using this forum again

    I just happened to mention that in my opinion I feel that the OP is a troll.

    Not random at all.

    She installs solar panels at her properties.

    But does not do any maintenance!

    You have a faulty tap, the one that screeches and runs when off. I came across this scenario once only and that was about two months ago.
