Water Rates Worksop

Having a water meter in your home will dictate your water rates in Worksop. You can easily find out whether your Worksop water rates are metered by looking at your water bill. Homes with metered Worksop 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 Worksop 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.

Worksop Water Hardness

Worksop water hardness is rated as soft. 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, Worksop picks up minerals, such as magnesium or calcium, on the way to your tap. Having soft water is a good thing, as this means that your water will help your energy bills to be more efficient compared to hard water homes and your appliances such as kettles and washing machines will be less prone to deterioration or lime-scaling.

Can you drink the water in Worksop?

Yes! You can drink the water in Worksop. The UK Drinking Water Inspectorate has scored the Worksop water quality a 99.96% in overall mean zonal compliance, meaning that your water is perfectly safe to drink, and it is unnecessary to filter or boil your water in order to make it drinkable.

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

  1. Seasonal changes in water characteristics can infuse Worksop water with an earthy smell or taste due to changes in mineral presence or the source location of your water.
  2. Chlorination is a safe way to ensure hygiene throughout the pipe network, but can occasionally cause a very faint chlorine taste to be passed to your water.
  3. Plumbing can also contribute to the taste of your household water, adding salty, metallic, or rubbery hints.

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.

Worksop Water Problems

Water problems in the Worksop area could include anything from burst water mains to flooding. This is why it is important that you are familiar with what to do and who to contact regarding water emergencies.

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

  1. If you are out and about, call or tweet at Severn Trent, letting them know the nature of the incident and its location.
  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.

Worksop 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 Worksop.

  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. If this is in the closed position, this would prevent water from flowing to your taps.
  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 still, 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.
