Water Rates Swadlincote

Having a meter in your home will dictate your water rates in Swadlincote. You can easily find out whether your Swadlincote water rates are metered by looking at your water bill. Homes with metered Swadlincote water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills.

Homes that are not metered will have a rateable value of the home instead. The rateable value part of your Swadlincote water rates will have been determined by the local council in the 90s and most likely will not have changed since. The rateable value is determined by several factors such as the size of the property, the area and the general condition and availability of local services.

The average water rates Swadlincote water residents are being charged result in an average water bill of around £341 a year. This amount combines both water supply and sewerage costs.

Swadlincote Water Hardness

Swadlincote water hardness is rated as medium. While rainwater itself is relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle. Due to the way water filters through rocks in Severn Trent's supply area, Swadlincote picks up minerals, such as magnesium or calcium, on the way to your tap.

Can you drink the water in Swadlincote?

Yes! You can drink the water in Swadlincote. The UK Drinking Water Inspectorate has scored the Swadlincote water quality a 99.96% in overall mean zonal compliance, meaning that your water is perfectly safe to drink, and it is not necessary to filter or boil your water in order to make it drinkable.

If you notice a change in taste or smell of Swadlincote Water this may be due to one of the following reasons:

  1. Seasonal changes in water characteristics can infuse Swadlincote water with an earthy smell or taste.
  2. Plumbing can also contribute to the taste of your household water, adding salty, metallic, or rubbery hints.
  3. Chlorination is a safe way to ensure hygiene throughout the pipe network.

If you have concerns about your water's taste, smell or appearance, you should not hesitate to contact Severn Trent, who will provide further assistance.

Swadlincote Water Problems

Water problems in the Swadlincote area could include anything from burst water mains or even to having no water in your home. This is why it is important that you know what to do and who to contact regarding water emergencies.

If you notice flooding or a water leak outside your Swadlincote property, you need to do one of the following:

  1. If you are out and about, call or tweet at Severn Trent.
  2. If you are near a computer, go to the "Active Incidents" section of the Severn Trent website. From here you can check if there are any ongoing repairs or incidents in your area, and find useful advice on how to proceed.

Swadlincote No Water

If you have no water in your home, you need to find out if the issue is to do with your home plumbing or a Severn Trent outage impacting Swadlincote.

  1. Check the "Contact Us" or "Report problems" sections of the Severn Trent website for any information explaining why you have no water.
  2. Ask your neighbours whether they have the same issue as you.
  3. Check that your stop tap is open
  4. If you have no water, is it only no cold water or no hot water? If you have no hot water but have cold water, the issue will be with your home plumbing and not the water company

    If there is no cold water, not even a trickle, contact Severn Trent for assistance.
