Flushing Taps
2014-12-18

The water provided by Council supplies may very slowly dissolve the metal of household pipes and plumbing fittings.  This a very natural process, but one which can result in heavy metals such as copper being present in the water if it lies in the pipes or fittings for a long period.

It is therefore recommended that before using water for food preparation or drinking, taps should be run for two or three seconds to flush out any water that is so affected.
