    Had one of these yonks ago and recall the water system is not pressurised and works by microswitches on each tap. Sounds like you have a duff microswitch. They are replaceable, and if yours is like mine was (similar year) the taps were bog standard Whale ones as sold in all good accessory shops. If you don't fancy the fiddle of replacing the microswitches then simpler to replace the whole tap (though more expensive)
