Low water pressure or noisy pipes
Sometimes after we've been working, you might notice knocking or banging noises coming from the pipes in your home or changing water pressure through the taps and this could be caused by an airlock in the pipes. Check our water pressure advice to push the air through your pipes.
Sometimes when we've finished work, the water can look different. If this happens, run your cold tap until the water is completely clear. While your tap water is discoloured, don't run the hot tap or use dishwashers, washing machines or any appliances fed by your hot water supply. Your water colour could range from beige to dark brown or have bits in it.
Water can look cloudy or milky if air mixes with the supply. If water with air is allowed to stand for a few minutes in a glass, the water will clear from the bottom of the glass upwards as the air bubbles rise to the surface. There's no risk to health associated with cloudy, milky or bubbly water. Your water should run clear again within 24 hours, once all the air has been pushed through the system.
