  • 1 If your tap hisses and bubbles then stops, the most likely cause is an airlock. Connect one end of a hose pipe to the problem tap and connect the other end to a mains pipe – the cold water tap in your kitchen is ideal.
  • 2 When the pipe is connected turn on the faulty tap followed by the mains tap. The pressure from the mains tap should blow the air bubble out of the pipe.
  • 3 If you have an airlock in a kitchen mixer, simply remove the swivel spout and hold a cloth firmly over the hole. Turn on the hot water first and then follow with the cold tap.
