Where does Viewpark water come from?

Water can be provided from various sources, stretching from boreholes and wells to rivers and lakes. The majority of Scotlands water is sourced from local lochs and reservoirs. Due to them being topped up by rain (almost continuously), very little water comes from underground sources such as aquifers.

Water Rates Viewpark

Your home will have metered or unmetered rates. If you have metered rates, your water bill will display a meter number. If you can't see this, the account number may also start with MC for Metered Customer or UC for Unmetered Customer.

If you don't have a water bill you may be able to find a water meter by searching around your property. These would be located either near the stop tap in the kitchen or garage or in the garden within a small box set into the ground. If your property has a water meter, you must provide regular meter readings so that your water supplier can accurately bill you.

Homes that are not metered will have a rateable value instead. This uses factors such as property size and the availability of local services to create an estimated consumption value of your home, which is then used to generate your bill.

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

Our water rates and water meter guides will give you some great tips on how to get started saving on your water bill, and help you decide if metering is for you.

Viewpark Water Hardness

Viewpark water hardness is rated as soft. While rainwater is soft, water hardness changes as it travels through the water cycle and picks up minerals. The more minerals such as calcium or magnesium your water has, the harder it will be rates, and the less effective it will be for household usage. Having water of soft rating means that you should not see significant limescale accumulation or the deterioration of appliances, and it is unnecessary to take additional action to improve your water's quality.

Can you drink the water in Viewpark?

Yes! you can drink the water in Viewpark. The UK Drinking Water Inspectorate has scored Viewpark water quality a 99.96% in overall mean zonal compliance, meaning that your water is safe to drink. It is not necessary to boil or filter Viewpark water to make it potable.

If you notice mild changes to Viewpark's water quality,this could be due to the following:

  1. Plumbing such as a water pipe replacement or tap repairs can also contribute to the taste of your household water, adding metallic, salty or rubbery hints.
  2. Chlorination is used to safely eliminate harmfull bacterial build-ups in your water.
  3. Seasonal changes can give water with an earthy smell or taste, particularly as the mineral content can change throughout the year.

If you feel that your water may no longer be safe to consume or has deteriorated in quality, you should contact Scottish Water.

Viewpark Water Problems

Viewpark water problems can include anything from a burst water main or flooding to no water in your home. This is why you should make sure you know what to do and who to contact regarding water emergencies.

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

  1. If you are out and about, call or tweet Scottish Water
  2. If you are near a computer, go to the "report a leak" section of Scottish Water and fill out the online form.

Viewpark No Water

If you have no water in your home, it is important to identify if the issue is related to your home plumbing or a Scottish Water outage impacting Viewpark.

  1. If you are able, ask your neighbours if they have the same issue. If they don't you may need to contact a plumber, as the issue could relate to your home's plumbing.
  2. Check that your stop tap is open. If this is in the closed position, turning it to the open position should allow water to resume flowing.
  3. Check the "Contact Us" or "Report problems" sections of the Scottish Water website for any information explaining why you have no water.
  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.
