It also reduces leaks and pipe bursts by better ensuring that pressure remains within levels that the pipework can tolerate, and reduces the rate of loss from leaks and bursts.</p><p> <strong>Tips for pressure management</strong></p><ul><li>Please store only up to 10 litres of water for essential usage if required. 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></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. If the problem persists for an unreasonable period of time, please send an email to <a href=""></a> or call <em><a>086 010 3089</a></em>, WhatsApp <em><a>063 407 3699</a></em> or SMS<em><a> 31373</a></em> (max of 160 characters).</p><p>Please visit <a href=""></a> for all water-related information and follow <a href="" target="_blank"></a> for specific pressure management information. </p><p>At all times careful consideration is given to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply. The City regrets any inconvenience caused. </p><p> <b>End</b></p>2018-10-22T22:00:00ZGP0|#517a3cab-cbdb-4f0e-8dd5-c471ecf95199;L0|#0517a3cab-cbdb-4f0e-8dd5-c471ecf95199|Media alerts;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891d;GP0|#e3c03ac1-845c-4119-815d-e796340463ba;L0|#0e3c03ac1-845c-4119-815d-e796340463ba|Community newsGP0|#42305b06-67ec-4657-9272-641a0ea14201;L0|#042305b06-67ec-4657-9272-641a0ea14201|water supply;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#3e84e2ed-3e2d-44ae-a5b6-af54ef207755;L0|#03e84e2ed-3e2d-44ae-a5b6-af54ef207755|maintenance;GP0|#0e2be812-d82a-41a3-aa0e-a967e14995b8;L0|#00e2be812-d82a-41a3-aa0e-a967e14995b8|save water1
