Popular Queries of Scottish Water Customers
Should I get a water meter for my property?
- A water meter enables you to better monitor the amount of water you use and submit clearer readings to Scottish Water. This way, your bill charges will be more accurate and you may even save money.
- Scottish Water will provide a standard meter at its own expense, which will remain the property of the company from then onwards. Any other costs for creating a space for the meter must be met by the customer. If you don’t own the property, you must obtain permission of the owner before a meter can be fitted.
- In the case of a meter repair or replacement, all costs will be the responsibility of the customer if damage was due to anyone other than a member of Scottish Water, or by frost. Costs will depend on the size of your meter and the type of installation required.
What do I do in a flooding incident?
- Scottish Water has a responsibility to keep you and your local area safe from the dangers of flooding. It is responsible for drainage of rainwater run-off from any paved ground surfaces or roofing within the boundaries of a property.
- If you need to report a flooding incident that appears to be contaminated with sewage, you should inform Scottish Water immediately by calling the Scottish Water contact number.
- Remember that a property’s water supply pipe, drainage pipe and stop valve are all the responsibility of the home owner. If the flood appears to be coming from road drainage however, it is best to call your Local Authority.
My water appears to be a different colour/taste/smell. Why is this?
- The water that comes out of your tap may sometimes vary slightly in cloudiness, colour, taste or smell.
- The raw water drawn from surface sources in Scotland is mostly coloured to start off with, so this can sometimes be the cause for the change in your water. However, these differences can also emerge within the water treatment process, during distribution or even within your home’s plumbing system.
- If you spot any changes in your home’s tap water, it is important that you call the Scottish Water phone number right away so the causes can be investigated. ‘White’ water (water with air bubbles in it) is still safe to drink, as is ‘blue’ water (water from a high quality treatment works).
