    Great queue control, I got to number 49 and it kicked me out ! Must have been damaging their response time stats !

    I shall just have to clean my teeth with gallons of cider instead . Luckily just washed up after tea , should have saved the washing up water after for the loo.
    If it's off til the 4th , going to have to break lockdown rules and do an 'essential' 60 mile journey with the tent to camp in sons garden.

    At least I had a shower and got my suncream off me before it went off. My neighbour has just come back from his run to find it off :lol:

    A chap I worked with once had someone chuck a pint of orange juice at him from a passing car, whilst he was out jogging. It was a really hot day and, by the time he got home it had dried and solidified, sticking his running kit to him to the extent that he was having trouble walking. He had to have a shower to soak things enough to get them off before he had his 'proper' shower...

    Seems it is off in quite a few places around Stafford. Some people just reporting low pressure (including someone on our estate, they must be nearer the start of the supply )

    I'm now number 248 in the webchat queue as well as hanging on the freephone line queue..... might have dozed off in a drunken stupor by the time it's my turn. Going to have to drink either cider or milk....cider seems the better idea (just for a change like......:D )

    Given up waiting for the phone to be answered, and just been cut off the webchat queue (thought the number in front was going down rather quickly, that's why ....slinging people off it)

    The 4th June thing is just routine maintenance, someone spotted a small leak. It's rather surprising given they replaced all the pipes not that long ago.

    Phew ! Thanks @gilesjuk that's a relief!

    Thanks @Tiberius Glad they know of the issue now.

    Only got a trickle back from the downstairs tap at the moment, so slowly filling a bowl to flush the loo with. Haven't got any reaching upstairs yet.

    You can water your plants / lawn so long as you use a hosepipe.
    Theres no hosepipe ban in force .

    Yes and that needs to change. You don't eat grass, watering your vegetables is fine.
