What a time to have no water.
Hi fellow members,just last week the local water board decided to replace our water meter & now,Boxing day morning with a house full of people,we have no water.Our neighbours on both sides have water so it must be our new meter that's jambed.I am now going to take a hammer & give it a little "tap"(pun intended) Back soon.Janes:wink:

Could be worse. With neighbors on each side with water, at least you can get water to flush your toilet with, that's first priority. You are friendly with your neighbors, aren't you? :laugh2:

Fridge downstairs has about 2 dozen bottles of amber liquid in it.Cant tolerate much beer with the meds I'm taking now but with no water,a man has to drink something.

That sucks. Things like this seem to happen on holidays and long weekends more often than any other time. At least it's not cold and frozen. I've had that happen before.

We have our water supply returned.The problem was apparently caused by a broken pipe down the line & a simple air lock which eventually effected our entire neighbourhood.As I said,water is back on but at a much reduced pressure so might not have heard the last of this.I forgot to mention,this new meter has been making weird clicking & squeaking sounds when a tap was turned on.It is not pipe hammer so I will ask for a replacement meter. Best regards,Jamesjj

That was a weird coincidence James . Glad to hear it’s resolved . It’s surprising how much hassle not having water can be in such short order .
It’s funny how we take water so much for granted , not realizing what a valuable commodity it is .
Thankfully we have lots in Canada
