    Is it a combi boiler or system boiler you have m8?

    And yes if you can trace which pipe gets hot when you turn on the hot tap in question you may find a valve to isolate it,failing that you may need to isolate the cold feed to the boiler if it is a combi.

    Its a combi, and all the others APART from the hot water pipe have an valve to turn it off! So i think it looks like i will have to turn of the cold water feed to the system!
