No Water?

Has your cold water supply stopped? We've got advice for you to help get the water flowing again.

1. First, check your stop tap

Find your stop tap (it's usually under the kitchen sink, or in the bathroom) and make sure it is fully open.


If you've had a new washing machine installed, for example, it's likely your stop tap was turned off to safely plumb the appliance in.


Make sure you've turned your tap off if you still have no water. This will prevent any flooding if you've accidentally left a tap turned on somewhere in your home.

2. I've checked my stop tap, but I still don't have water.

Ask your neighbours if they have a water supply to their home.


If they don't have water, the supply issue is likely due to a burst water main or repair work. If they have water, the supply issue may be in your internal pipework. You'll need to get a reliable plumber. Find an approved plumber at WaterSafe (opens new window).
