No water coming from your taps?
Water is essential for us all, and without it, we face big disruptions to our daily life. When the water supply to our homes is disrupted and we are left with no running water, it can be a big cause for concern. It’s a frustrating experience, but there are some steps you can take to fix it, or at the very least gain some insight into why it has happened and when it may be turned back on. Looking for some advice from a professional plumber on the Mornington Peninsula? In today’s blog, we will discuss the step-by-step guide on what to do if you have no water in your taps at home.
Step 1 – Check another tap
Before you go into panic mode, check that to see if there is any water coming from other taps around your house. If there is water coming from another tap in your home, then it’s likely a small problem with one tap that can easily be fixed. If your other taps still have no water, move on to the next step.
Step 2 – Ask your neighbours
Ask your neighbours if they’re experiencing the same issue as you. If they are, it’s likely that there’s a problem with the water supply system in your area. There may be an issue preventing the water from reaching your homes, or there could be maintenance that is affecting your water supply. If this is the case, you should receive a text message or some form of communication from South East Water that informs you of this. If you are renting your home, you can contact the landlord to see if they have had any correspondence. You can also contact South East Water yourself to report the issue and ask for some more information on when it will be resolved.
Step 3 – Check your water meter
If your neighbours do have water, the problem is likely within your own home. The first thing to check is your water meter. The water meter is usually located outside your home, near the edge of your property. Check if the meter is running. If it is, there’s likely a leak somewhere in your home. If it’s not, the issue may be related to the water supply system leading to your home.
