If your water has changed

If your water is discoloured, or you've noticed a change in the taste or smell of your water, we can help. It's usually nothing to worry about, but we've put together some pages with the most common causes and what you can do about them.

Strange taste or odd smell?

If your water smells or tastes funny, it's usually nothing to worry about, but here are the most common causes and what you can do about them.

Does your water look different?

Discoloured water is normally short lived and can often be cleared by allowing the first incoming cold water tap to run for five minutes.

Check your water hardness

Water hardness is the measure of the concentration of calcium and magnesium salts in your water - two of the essential minerals that your body needs.
