    Hi,

    I've been wanting to find out where exactly the stop valves (stop cocks) for hot and cold water are. Hopefully one of you can help me with this!

    I took some photos and numbered the valves - here's the link: Where are the hot and cold water stop valves? - Album on Imgur

    Could you please help me? Thank you so much!

    2 Turns your hot water off by stopping cold water coming into the bottom of the cylinder.

    I can't really see what the other valves are doing from the angle of the photo. Turn them off one by one and see when your bath tap stops running.

    Do not have your heating on when you do this.

    When you put them back to their original position, give them a half turn in the opposite direction as this will stop them from sticking.
