Urgent help needed in cold weather with no water from any tap

Postby Manintrouble » Fri Mar 02, 2018 9:21 pm


I hope someone can help and sending thanks in advance to anyone who responds

A few days ago in this appalling weather, my partners at had no water coming out of her bath taps and no hot water out of any of her other taps,, just cold water, then the next day there was no water at all

24 hours later the water company announced there was a burst pipe in the road which apparently caused her issues

They have now 18 hours later repaired the burst pipe and she has cold water coming into her kitchen, toilet and bathroom sink, she has no water at all coming into the bath, and no hot water anywhere in the flat

She is supplied by an immersion heater and is all electric, no gas boilers to be concerned with

He water has now been back on for about 5 hours and still nothing coming from the hot taps or the cold tap in the bath tub

The immersion tank feels warm as do the pipes coming out of it

She is pregnant and really struggling to have a bath, I’ve filled numerous saucepans and kettles to help her but it’s a mission

Can anyone shed some light please

Thank you all
