Water Rates Coatbridge

Water rates in Coatbridge may vary depending on whether your home has a water meter. You can find out whether your Coatbridge water rates are metered by looking at your water bill. Homes with metered Coatbridge water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills. Alternately if a water meter can be found near the stop tap or in the garden, this would suggest that you have water rates.

Homes that are not metered won't have water rates, but they will have the rateable value of the home in their place. The rateable value part of your Coatbridge water rates will have been determined by the local council in the 90s and will probably not have changed since then. These rates take into consideration several factors, such as property size, and the availability of local services.

The average water rates Coatbridge residents are being charged result in an average water bill of around £369 a year. This amount combines both water supply and sewerage costs.

Coatbridge Water Hardness

The water hardness level in Coatbridge is rated as soft. This means that your water will be more effective at tasks such as cleaning dishes or clothes and will help reduce your energy bills in comparison with homes in hard water areas. While rainwater itself starts as relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle. Due to the way water filters through rocks in Scottish Water's supply area, water can pick up minerals, such as magnesium or calcium, on the way to your tap.

Can you drink the water in Coatbridge?

Yes! The water in Coatbridge meets very high standards, and is perfectly safe to drink. The UK Drinking Water Inspectorate has scored Coatbridge tap water quality a 99.96% in overall mean zonal compliance, meaning that your water is safe to drink. It is unecessary to boil or filter Coatbridge tap water to make it safe to drink.

If you notice a gradual change in taste or smell of Coatbridge water this is unlikely to be cause for concern, and may be due to one of the following reasons:

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

If you have concerns about the safety or health your water, you should not hesitate to contact Scottish Water.

Coatbridge Water Problems

Coatbridge water problems can include anything from burst water mains or flooding to having no water in your home. This is why it is important to familiarize yourself with what to do and who to contact regarding water emergencies.

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

  1. If you are out and about, you should give Scottish Water a call, or contact them over social media.
  2. If you have access to a computer, go to the "report a leak" section of the Scottish Water website and fill out the online form.

Coatbridge 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 Scottish Water outage impacting Coatbridge.

  1. Check the "In Your Area" sections of the Scottish Water website to check for any information explaining existing works or issues that might shed light on why you have no water.
  2. Ask your neighbours if they are experiencing 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 cold water but no hot 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 Scottish Water for assistance.
