Question about Bathroom Accessories
The cold water valve in the airing cupboard is jammed in the open position.
I can't shut the valve in order to replace the tap washer in the bath.
What do you suggest I do?I did not want to use too much force in case I broke something.
Hi it sounds as though its stuck due to verdigris & scale, a common problem.if you break it all thats likely to happen is the spindle will shear off, which will mean a new one anyway. If you dont want to do this I suggest you turn off the water to the storage tank & open the cold taps till the water stops you can then replace the washer.whilstthe water is drained i suggest a new valve to be fitted for future servicing etc, also it might pay you to fit a service valve on the supply to the tap.
