Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

It sounds like you may have a isolator valve which has been turned disabling water to part of the building, unless the kitchen is being fed from a different hot water supply. Is the hot water in the kitchen under normal pressure or reduced pressure?

Building Control requires all works performed to a unvented system to be performed by a qualified plumber, since there is a risk for serious injury in the event the hot water system over pressurises.
