1 Attach a length of hosepipe between the affected tap and the cold mains water tap at the kitchen sink.
2 Leave both taps open for a short while and try the air locked tap again.
3 If necessary, repeat the procedure until water runs freely.

If you have to use a long hose, it will contain a lot of water so drain it into the kitchen sink befor you move it.

If you still can not remove the airlock you will have to call the services of a professional plumber.
