What to do when the plummer says it is so awkward to get at the copper feed pipe to the hot tap that he cannot fix a small leak at either the compression fitting to the tap or the isolation valve
It is the bath I am talking about. The pipe to the
hot tap. Under the bath.

It can be hard to get to sometimes but sounds to me like he's being lazy. Call an established plumber who will have come across this kind of thing in the past. Might cost a little more but it's not a problem that is unfixable.

The easiest way is to stop water to tap and cut pipe below leak and remove tap connector to hot tap and fit a flexible tap connector to join onto existing pipe that was cut below leak. Job done. This should take less than an hour to complete and cost about £55.00 labour and materials.
