You might notice the colour of your tap water changes from time to time. It’s normally still safe to drink. Try running the cold tap to see if it goes clear again. There are a few reasons water may change colour.
- The pipes on your property may be old or need to be repaired. Call a plumber to check their condition.
- If discoloured water only comes from your hot water taps, maybe your hot water service needs to be repaired or replaced. It’s another job for a plumber.
- We could be working on the water pipes in your area. Find out at water supply and service updates.
