What Is The Water Pressure In My Area?
The Company has a duty to provide a minimum guaranteed water pressure of 10 metres head (1 bar). This minimum standard is measured at the Company’s stop valve which is usually situated at the boundary of the property.
Operationally throughout the Company’s area of supply our water pressure varies. We do, however, aim to provide a working pressure of approximately 15 metres head (1.5 bar).
Some of our customers require continuous water pressure above the minimum guaranteed standard. This can be achieved through a combination of water storage and a pressured boosted system.
The diagram below is an example of a system without a break tank and therefore will be limited to drawing 12 litres per minute.
Some ball valves and water using appliances require adjustment, depending on the water pressure they receive. If you are unsure of the water pressure you receive you may contact us for advice on 02392 449082.
