Mains Water Supply Clogged?

Postby Matty_H » Sat Apr 06, 2019 4:51 pm

Hi Team,

Just had the water board out to my parents' house to look at why the water pressure is low. The chap suggested changing the stop cock in the house and forcing a 'blow through' of the pipe back to where the pipe on their property is connected to the mains supply (mains supply pressure was OK).

Changing the stop cock is a simple task, but does anyone know how to perform a 'blow through' to clear any gunk that might be residing in the incoming pipe on their property?
