In response to Re: airlocked pipes
: my water system has no cold water at the bathroom sink and at the toilet.there was an airlock,i solved the hot water by connecting the main supply to the hot water line and forcing it through.i then looped the hot water line to the cold line in the bathroom and connected the main cold line to the hot again(downstairs)but after reconnecting the lines the problem was still the same,any suggestions.thank you

Reply:
It's probably not "air-locked" under normal piping conditions but there could possibly be debris in the lines restricting flow. I would take the valves off below the fixtures and check for debris at that point.
If not, the problem may be deeper that will require a licensed plumber to troubleshoot your problem.
