Welsh Water Hosepipe Ban 2022

Update 25/10/2022 – This hosepipe ban has now ended.

Welsh Water will introduce a hosepipe ban in “Pembrokeshire and a small adjoining part of Carmarthenshire” starting on Friday the 19th of August.

The company says that record temperatures, dry conditions and an increased demand for water have influenced the decision to introduce a hosepipe ban.

Welsh Water say that they’ve been bringing in water from surrounding areas and increasing the number of teams finding and fixing leaks.

Customers must not:

  • Water a garden using a hosepipe
  • Water plants on domestic or other non-commercial premises using a hosepipe
  • Draw water, using a hosepipe, for domestic recreational use
  • Fill or maintain a domestic pond using a hosepipe
  • Fill or maintain an ornamental fountain
  • Fill or maintain a domestic swimming, paddling pool or hot tub
  • Clean a private vehicle using a hosepipe
  • Clean walls, or windows of domestic premises using a hosepipe
  • Clean paths, patios or other artificial outdoor surfaces, such as decking using a hosepipe
  • Clean a private leisure boat using a hosepipe
