hosed, or should it be hozed?
The back garden tap is now functional. The plumbers reckoned it was a defective check valve that was stopping the water flow. A few minutes later a replacement was fitted and then we had outside water.
I've celebrated by buying a replacement hosepipe.
It's one of those Superhozes. Unlike a normal hose, it weighs almost nothing and despite a sensible length it can fit into a small carry box. I know, it's not like industrial strength gardening, but for us, it's an ideal blend of new technology with practicality.
I didn't know it was possible to get so excited about a hose pipe, but then again, it is orange.
