    Can you please edit the title of your thread to better describe your problem.

    Have you checked the water level in the large tank in your attic to see if it is full?

    Righty tighty (Clock wise,off)

    Lefty loosely (anti clock wise on)

    An old plumber told me that once :pac:

    Your kitchen cold tap is mains fed, all other outlets are normally fed from tank in attic. Sounds like you have an airlock.

    Do you have a mixer tap at kitchen sink? I.E does it have two handles and one spout

    Ok, if it's an airlock, you need to free it.

    get a cloth or sponge and block spout witr one hand. With other hand, open hot handle at kitchen sink. Then open cold handle slowly, we are trying to force cold water up thee hot handle line to free airlock. Don't open cold handle too much or you will get soaked. Count to 30, you may have to do this a few times. When finished, remove hand from spuot, the hot water should splutter out before returning to normal flow.
