    If you like me use compressed air to clear water out of the pipes and tap fittings beware of jamming the non return valve.
    Make sure at least 2 taps are open!
    I take the shower head off and use the shower hose to introduce the compressed air. In turning the mixture control there must have been a moment when the system was closed and pressure built up. Lesson learnt!

    I thought you were going to say it drained down automatically over night as it was so cold this morning!
