    Managed to buy a 22m stopcock and 22m double check valve from toolstation tonight, not had the chance to attempt it yet. The stopcock looks same length, but the new check valve does look longer than my existing one and I’ve not got much room to play around with copper pipe etc, maybe I should just call the experts

    If I had more copper pipe to play with I think I could manage it, unless I could find a shorter double check valve than I bought?

    Sounds to me like you have a valve that isnt open all the way somewhere. Check your main water shut off first.

    Managed to squeeze the job in this morning replaced stopcock and double check valve. Problem solved! Thanks so much for all the help. Is it normal for the water to have a sight brown colour when taps are ran especially the hot ?

    Nice job, yes it's normal to have discoloured water for a bit after a drain down.
