The project is finally nearing completion with only a few minor details to attend to before we can turn our attention to the serious business of connecting flats to the new supply. The final work may still take a little time and we appreciate your patience.
We now have a connection through the wall of the boiler room that joins with the Thames Water main on Biddulph Road. You will see from the photo that it is not yet connected to our internal pipework as we are still waiting for Thames Water to make the final join and to fit a water meter.
The break tank (below) is full installed. This will be filled from the mains to give Ashworth Mansions a steady reserve of water so that we can maintain pressure at all times.
The pumps (below) are also fully installed. These will supply water from the break tank through the pipework that runs at the back of each block and then into the individual flats themselves. The pumps will be sound proofed to keep the noise down and we are still awaiting this material.
Finally, we are beginning the detailed planning of how and when each flat can connect to the new system. We will be issuing plenty of communication on this subject including detailed FAQ’s but will hold off on this until the new system is fully functioning and tested.
