    How can I clear debris from my external tap?


    My external stop tap appears to be full of debris. What can I do about this and actually can it be fixed DIY for that matter?

    "You'll need to turn off the mains water stopcock first before attempting this or turn the Bali fix of .then you can unwind the outside tap and clean any debris found in it, to be cleaned or simply just change the tap and then you can turn the mains back on and check"
