Residents are urged not to stockpile large volumes of municipal water. This is because, if there are any significant service interruptions, they are not expected to be in effect for long periods</li><li>Please also keep taps closed to prevent water damage in the event of water being restored after a disruption</li><li>Do water-intensive activities such as laundry in non-peak hours i.e. not between 06:00 and 08:00 in the mornings or 18:00 and 20:00 in the evenings</li> </ul><p>Please always check with your neighbours whether they too are experiencing low water pressure or intermittent supply disruptions as this would in all likelihood be pressure-related. <br><br>If the problem persists for an unreasonable period of time, please send an email to <a href="mailto:water@capetown.gov.za">water@capetown.gov.za</a> or call <em> <a>0860 103 089</a></em>, WhatsApp <em> <a>063 407 3699</a></em>​ or SMS 31373 (max of 160 characters).</p><p>Please visit <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/residential-utility-services/residential-water-and-sanitation-services/make-water-saving-a-way-of-life">www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater​</a> for all water-related information and follow <a href="https://twitter.com/CityofCTAlerts" target="_blank">https://twitter.com/CityofCTAlerts​</a> for specific pressure management information. </p><p>At all times careful consideration will be given to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply.
