Re: Connecting into incoming water main



P.S. I'm assuming you are planning to take the spur after the stop cock.

So what happens when you get a leak (as with my neighbour's incoming rising main supply, and it's under the house - don't ask why!) and you can't get a plumber to fix it? (Been at least 2 weeks now.) Currently they've turned the water off at the garden stop cock, and having it on briefly so as to fill the loft tank, and kettles etc. in the kitchen.

There are advantages to having a tank, as you point out. Also, disadvantages if the thing bursts. Worst case I heard was a central htg system that went wrong and heated the cold water storage tank to near boiling. Of course the plastic burst and the couple in bed downstairs had 50 gallons (about 250 litres) of near-boiling water fall on them. The girl was killed.
