Could be worth trying turning off the water at the mains, opening up all the taps to drain, and then turning back on again at the mains.

An interesting thought James. I wonder though wouldn't that allow air to fill up the pipes and add to the problem? Why I wonder this is because of the opinions I found on Google about turning on all the taps to get rid of air in the pipes because they say this can cause tap hammer when you turn off a tap suddenly. Not thjat this is my particular problem.

I see what he is suggesting, maybe a cycling airlock in some weirdly done part of your piping. Personally I would go turn all the taps on at once to fix that one. Close to the clutching at straws stage, but hey why not : )

Another good idea. Yes I will try this one as soon as I get a convenient time. Thanks guys for all your thoughts. Actuallly, by the way, the house is on the market and in a day or so we should here if it is sold. I just want to fix it before it becomes the next guy,s problem.
