Cold water supply

When it comes to your water supply, there are three questions to ask yourself: where is it going to come from and will it be of sufficient quality and pressure?

Mains water is supplied to your home through pipes by gravity, so the water pressure into your home will be directly affected by your elevation and proximity to the local reservoir. Dwellings in low areas will generally have high water pressure and those in higher areas low pressure.

Mains, water pressure is managed by using pressure regulating valves and monitoring points to achieve consistent water pressure across the network as well as checking for leaks.
