Has anyone else had their water turned off in Playa Flamenca? We are at top end in Al Andalus 1.  Thanks.

We are in Calle Niagara, top end near the nursery school, and our water has been on but very low pressure for the last few hours. I hope it's sorted soon!

Ours is always really low , it' barely fast enough to have a wash . It' fine in the bath but kitchen and bathroom sinks are really slow

It sounds like you have a problem. we usually get very good water pressure as do our neighbours. Perhaps you should get it checked out.

Each water using area in the house usually has stopcocks on the wall somewhere so you turn off or regulate the water to specific areas. Individual taps also have stopcocks on the water feed going to them, usually under the sink.

I suggest you may need to regulate the water going to your kitchen and bathroom sinks via the various stopcocks.

We only bought the apartment last Christmas and are still new to things over in spain . We will have a loo when we are back ato Christmas.  In the bathroom quite high up there are 2 silver taps and I think there may be some in the kitchen next to the water heater . Are those what you mean ?

Yes, those are the ones. The blue is cold water and the red one hot water. Turn them up or down to get the flow correct.

Also, each tap has a small stopcock, either in the flexible hose or in the wall outlet under the sink. The toilet has a similar one. Theses are usually turned either on or off but the may be in a part on position. Make sure they are all on.

We had to replace the small stop cocks that the taps connect to in our kitchen which would not open fully causing low pressure
