    I have no water from my cold tap since midday.
    The hot tap has normal supply but I believe that's from the attic tank?

    I'm not sure if it's a frozen pipe or if the water's off in the area (Northside)

    Anyone else affected?

    John.

    We've had no water upstairs since yesterday. The taps in the kitchen still work though. I'm in Caherdavin. My brother has friends near Ashbrook and Clareview who have had similar problems since last week.

    no electricity around lunch time out Fr. Russell Rd, back now thankfully before dark.
    (Weird its happened every Christmas day for the last few years for a few mins at a time,
    cant complain it could be far worse though)

    My Hot tap downstairs wont work and the Rads upstairs wont work, The Rads downstairs all work fine, No problems with the tank in the attic (maybe there is but its still topping itself when running the taps upstairs) or the cold taps though. everything was working fine up until last night.

    Mains water supply gone in Corbally

    water and leccy here in raheen.
    Got up this morning and was taking a shower and noticed very little pressure from cold tap - tank in attic was half empty and mains pipe to it frozen.
    Inspected a little further (removed insulation on some pipes) only to find one pipe (a mains pipe) split from the frozen water.
    replaced that
    and thankfully having heating on all day and the attic door open defrosted it and we're back on track - just the electric shower out of commission now which has been offline since Monday - but I can live with that.

    Was outside just a few mins ago and it's definitely warmer out there... cold, but not as bad.
    hope this thaw is coming..
    Sounds like a few of ye have some frozen pipes - would recommend checking them out before it does thaw out so that you can turn off any water before it becomes an issue.

    Whatever ye do - make sure that there's water in the tank in the attic's - otherwise you could do serious damage to the tank in the hot-press!


  • Registered Users Posts: 51,232 ✭✭✭✭bazz26


    No water out here in Caherconlish since Thursday, being using bottled water and rationing it from the tank since. Electricity was out for 2 hours yesterday evening too. Thaw cannot arrive too soon.

    water in corbally, but our pipes in the attic froze so no hot water or showers:mad:

    If your water main to house is frozen or the water main in the area is frozen resulting in no water supply then there is little you can do except ;
    - Open stop cock outside house.
    - Pour kettle after kettle of near boiling water into stop cock enclosure.
    - You may need to do this 5 to ten times.
    The hot water flows along the mains pipe top your house and along the council mains. It only needs to defrost the ice a little and the water will begin to flow. The de-icing may not happen immediately so be aware if you have taps on inside.

    If your pipes are frozen inside your property then things are more serious. When the thaw comes burst pipes and fittings will start to leak. It is essential that you have water turned off at the mains and from the water tank until such time as you can check for leaks. Once leaks are located you can mend and then turn water back on.

    I fear a huge amount of people are going to be flooded when the thaw comes next week.

    Is anyone without water in Caherdaving this morning?


  • Registered Users Posts: 522 ✭✭✭Gneez


    No water on ground floor a pipe might have burst as there's small flooding in the kitchen but water upstairs works.

    No flooding but downstairs cold doesnt work, have no idea how to unfreeze the mains pipe especially if its not exposed anywhere and its under ground?

    Is anyone without water in Caherdavin this morning?

    I'm in Caherdavin Heights and have no water since yesterday.

    Same as Cleese....no cold water downstairs. Tank in attic is nearly empty so I'm guessing the outside mains supply is frozen and we'll just have to wait it out till the thaw takes effect.

    See this is the thing I rang the Emergency water board and they said nothing was reported as being wrong from Caherdavin so I am not sure what to do .

    I rang the Emergency water board

    Do you have a no. for them? Maybe if a few people rang, they'd do something?

  • Registered Users Posts: 677 ✭✭✭Champ


    Reporting from Caherdavin.

    Yes water completely gone for the entire area. Confirmed with neighbours etc.

    My sister went to mass and unconfirmed news is that the council have turned off water supplies since there's bursted pipes everywhere.


  • Registered Users Posts: 51,232 ✭✭✭✭bazz26


    Despite the thaw today, the ground is still very cold. It could be another day or two before the mains really thaws out. :(

    Anyone know about the water supply in the dublin road area, have hot water, and from the tank, no mains supply ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 412 ✭✭brousuka
