If people are turning off water do they not have to inform you any more, getting increasingly annoyed with filling a bath only to turn round and see it brown, I have just tried 3 times tonight to run a bath after running taps clear and it comes out brown again [evil]

I didn't think Unicorn's needed to bathe. I was led to believe they were always pure and couldn't get dirty!

Hi Unicorn,

They need to inform you about turning off the water supply.

You still have a water supply...it's just filthy!

Check the council website and make sure it is detailed there...some repair work or other will be to blame. We get it about once a fortnight and not only is it darned annoying it is time consuming and expensive draining bath after bath of gritty water.:mad:

I commiserate totally!

ah you see I like to relax and read in the bath :lol: so get most annoyed when I get mingin water, They are building in our area but surely it is common decency to warn people that the water is foosum or flush the pipes out themselves :roll: one of these days I will be doing a whites wash and it will come out a bonny rust colour.

Ye might want to boil yer drinking water an all....at least test it in a very white cup first.

You could aye see the gritty stuff as a natural exfoliant...folks pay 's for that.;)

Hi Unicorn, Who is it that is turning off your water, a building firm or scottish water?

Thanks for the info Alli I will give them a call and see what is going on as it really is very annoying to not even be warned.
