    More on the red knob water draining

    Thanks. A quick follow up to the red knob water drain saga. Following your advice tapping (clunking hard) the red knob brass fitting seems to have made no difference. Turning the red knob anti clockwise makes the knob run up a cam and visibly move further out of the brass fitting whereupon it releases water onto the floor. The knob stays in that position unless it is turned back to its old position by hand, when it also then goes back in towards the fitting. There appears to be no spring resistance to return it. However, the red knob can be turned past the cam anti clockwise when it will then spring in towards the fitting with a clunk, presumably shutting the valve although the red knob (the plastic bit) remains quite loose and wobbly. (There appear to be about 4 cam positions available per revolution of the red knob.) Is this still okay? Advice much appreciated. Graham (and Carole)

    Hi Graham.
    That sounds fine, sometimes you have to hold the knob in the draining position otherwise it snaps shut, but if yours stays in position until you move it that fine. The different cam positions are normal too.

      Thanks Ant, that's exactly the reassurance I wanted. Hope you had a restful holiday break and Santa was good to you. Graham and Carole
