We’re happy to let you know that we’ve fixed the burst water pipe in OX2, you should notice your water supply returning slowly on OX1 and OX2 as our network recovers, however this is taking longer than expected.

It can take a little bit of time for the pressure in our pipes to build back up, so your water may splutter to begin with. Just turn on your cold kitchen tap and it should flow freely after a couple of minutes. If it’s cloudy, this should also clear fairly quickly.

Thank you for your continued patience.

If you need an extra helping hand find out how our Priority Services can help. We're always here to talk about your needs, whether they are medical, financial or something else.

Check with your neighbours

If there’s no issue with their supply, the problem is with your internal plumbing. If you live in a block of flats, check with the building maintenance, your local authority, or the managing agent of the building for any known internal issues.

If there is a problem with your neighbours supply, it may be a problem we’re not aware of. Please call 0800 316 9800 to let us know.

 

Try your cold kitchen tap

The main water supply normally enters your home in the cold kitchen or utility room tap.

If water comes out of this tap but not elsewhere (such as your shower or bathroom tap), the problem is with your internal plumbing.

 

Check your stop valves are open

Your inside stop valve needs to be fully open. It’s usually located under the kitchen sink, in the airing cupboard or under the floorboards by the front door. If the valve is closed, turn it anti-clockwise to ensure that it is fully open.

If you're unsure on how to find and use your inside stopvalve, watch our helpful video and read our tips.

Your outside stop valve also needs to be fully open. Some properties share their water supply with their neighbours so check with your neighbours to see if they have recently used the outside stop valve.

If you're unable to use or locate the outside stop valve, find out by watching our useful video and reading our tips.

 

Check for frozen pipes

The cold weather can freeze your pipes, making them more likely to expand and burst.

Check visible pipes for damage. If you find a pipe which is frozen, take a look at our useful video for tips on how to treat them.
