Pressure management

Why do we manage water pressure?

Managing water pressure is crucial to preventing leaks and bursts on both our pipes and yours, keeping your supply running smoothly and protecting you from unexpected costs.

The water pressure in your home will vary depending on:

  • Where you live
  • How much water is being used by you and your neighbours at the same time
  • How high above sea level the reservoir is compared to your property
