Sorry, I meant Tuesday.

With regards water, the tanks had run dry and some airlocks had entered the system causing the pump to go mad. Everything seems fine now, but cold water is still weak.

We called out a plumber bit it had started to fix itself at that stage. I'd turned off the pump as well for a couple hours. My ego was hurt to realise that in this high tech house I'd no idea how to fix an airlock. I basically think the pump must be set up to do it one there is enough water in the tanks.

We're also having issues since Saturday, today the water pump went berserk so we contacted ballymore. Apparently there's a mains water supply issue and the council must address it. We've contacted the council and irish water and they say nobody else has this issue, so they claim we have a leak in our end but if it's a few houses then it can't be. Has anybody tried talking to them? We even told them more people are having the same problem but they ignored that.

Just checked tank and it is filling quite slowly. It's a problem that is probably only going to get worse as more houses are occupied. The water pressure seems OK in my kitchen but it seems the extra x metres height of the attic tank is having a big effect on the supply pressure.
I'd say at peak times the tank would refill at a trickle.

How did you contact the council and Irish water.

Irish water's number is 1850278278 and Dublin city council's is 012222222. When I rang the council they first directed me to Irish waters then they rang me to say they had no complaints and no known problems with the supply, so maybe ring irish water first. They need to hear that there is a problem from more people.

Our water pressure from the mains seems to be back to normal, at least it's much better than it was.

Edit: beaten to the punch!

Don't give me any credit yet, we also have pressure but every time we open a tap the pump starts working like mad for what seems forever... I hope there's an improvement tomorrow!

Just moved in and have a few questions. In regards the heating system. There doesnt seem to be any hot water just cold. When you turn the tap to hot no water comes out.

Also where is the guarantee for the boiler - was anyone given this when moving in.

Also dont have the key to close the attic. Anyone not get theirs?

We had the same with our hot water. Apparently the system went into some standby mode as it hadn't been used in some time.
We contacted the plumbing sub contractor listed in the home owner pack.
M&F Heating and Plumbing. 045 432444.

That was a weekday so he was on site. I will pm you a mobile number, but please try ring the landline first.

As for warranty, they should also be the people to ask and if you could share the info you discover I would appreciate that.

Hi all,

Just looking to find out some information on the new gym that is supposed to be opening in RCP -
I have passed it a number of times now but don't see any movement despite all the new residents having moved in.
Does anyone know when this is expected to open or have any information?
