      Hi Kathy

      No hosepipe bans planned for anywhere in Yorkshire at the moment, though the drought is supposed to be heading towards East Yorkshire. Keep an eye on the news in the next few months.

    If a hosepipe ban does come into effect, is it literally just hosepipes that are banned? This year I have started growing lots of fruit and veg in my garden and I obviously don’t want it all to wilt and die. Can I just use a watering can instead?

      Hi Matt

      Hosepipes, pressure washers that sort of thing. Watering cans are fine.

    If there was a hosepaipe ban, how would you notify people.
    I assume, unless people have been notified officially via recorded delivery, then you have no proof that they actually know about it, so legally un-enforcable.

      Ignorance isn’t an excuse for breaking the law i’m afraid. You aren’t notified about any other changes to the law officially by mail. This is no different.

    When or if a hosepipe ban comes into place, does this include the use of power washers as I have just seen an advert saying they use less water than a hosepipe? This surprised me.

    • Hose
      April 9, 2012 at 7:11 pm #

      No power washers allowed either.

    Thank you, I thought as much, I can’ believe that they are advertising hosepipes and power washers on TV at the moment

    Hi There, whilst I appreciate that the is currently no hosepipe ban in West Yorkshire, landscape gardeners plan to turf my entire back garden this Friday. Should a hosepipe ban come into force, do you know if there would be exclusions for newly laid turf?

    • Hose
      April 11, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

      Well you don’t need to worry about a hosepipe ban in West Yorkshire for a while if at all this year. Assuming one came into force there would most probably be no allowances for newly laid turf.

    I can see that South Yorkshire is now part of the drought but there are no hosepipe bans yet in place. What sort of notice are we likely to be given if one is to be enforced and is Yorkshire Water legally obliged to contact it’s customers directly to inform them?

    Many Thanks

    • Hose

      The notice period is up to them. The current bans were announced about three weeks before they started.

      Water companies are not legally obliged to contact customers directly. They are obliged to announce restrictions in two local newspapers and on their website.

    Just a comment to all above, and any future viewers:

    Although, obviously, there is no hosepipe ban anywhere in West Yorkshire, or other parts of Yorkshire, that does not mean we should go mad with our use of hosepipes. The more that we restrict our use of them to essential requirements, the more likely it is that our water reserves will survive. So, please think and switch off when no longer needed.

    Cheers, MTL

      Definitely no hosepipe ban in Hull this weekend and very unlikely at all this year.
