Does that happen with all the taps in your house. Seems a bit strange that the water keeps flowing if you have turned off the main. If you leave it for 10 mins, do you still get water flowing out even with the mains closed? Just checking to see whether this is not caused by the tap draining the existing water from the pipes.
