Any ideas please? Thanks. Turned off both stopcock for now, and left the bucket for overnight.
If its that brass pipe on the right , is it comming from out of the pipe or from round the sides ? if sides suggest water turned off, then undo it clean it all , check washer, replace washer or coat the thread etc in vaseline, tighten it up again with a wrench or similar If from the pipe the brass oulet needs to be replaced with a cap, but dont think that advisable as that is adrain point and should not be covered up.Where you have the white tap, that could be the problem as it is not shutting the water of , so another job , turn water off , take tap off, undo connection, replace washer.
Unless you area D I Yer suggest you get a plumber
