Anyone else with low pressure all of a sudden? Cobbs Corner area? Nothing showing on Thames Water site.

i noticed it earlier this evening here in SE20...always very high pressure...The buses etc were on diversion earlier , so Im guessing maybe its to do with the work thats causing the diversion on Lawrie Pk Rd and or Sydenham Grove..

Apparently we had it earlier, too, so it must have hit the Penge side.

Ours went off altogether for about 12 hours a few days ago due to a mains pipe in Newlands Park. Haven't been monitoring pressure today so can't comment.

Boy, the water pressure was low this morning. Switched on the shower so I could wash my hair, and the low-pressure warning light immediately came on. No water.

On Friday 6th a water pipe burst by the junction of Lawrie Park Road and Crystal Palace Park Road so we have that causing low pressure now after they had literally just resolved the previous low pressure that morning.

Roadworks website says this is expected to finish on Thursday 12th.
