I've been in Wales over Christmas and was told on boxing day that the water was off/discoloured in the Tranmere area, but was back on by the evening.

We've got none, Tranmere, and it was my turn for a wash, never mind there's always next year.

We've still just about got water here, just off Borough Road, but the pressure is currently very low.

Yes, if anyone's interested United Utilities are reporting the progress of the repair on the website:-

http://unitedutilities.co.uk/Emergencies.aspx

You have to scroll down to the bottom where it says "Prenton, CH43"

EDIT: Just seen the other thread where this link was also provided.

EDIT: Our water has completely stopped now

they might have turned it all off while they fix the leak.

Yes, I was thinking the same. I guess they'll have to shut off the whole supply so that they can repair it.

Water from the tank is slightly milky here in Wallasey. Direct feed water is fine. Go figure. My tank must be minging.

There's another update on the CH43 fault

Quote:

Update at 6.31pm - The Inspector has confirmed the problem is due to a fault on the water network. He has corrected the fault and advised the water pressure is increasing back into the area. Your water supply will return to normal within the next few hours. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.


As it happens, we're in CH42, but I assume it's the same fault that's affecting everyone locally (our whole street is affected).
