Worried about the hosepipe ban?

What’s the advice?

As of 05/08/22

BISHTA (The British & Irish Spa & Hot Tub Association) continues discussions with Water UK (and through them, with Defra and the water companies), but it appears for now that the information passed on by our industry (and other industries using water) back in 2012 remains largely in place today.

During the water Temporary Use Bans, a number of activities that involve water usage can be prevented from using a hosepipe, or fixed plumbing, although the use of handheld containers, such as buckets, would still be permissible. Although swimming pools and paddling pools are included in the list of items that can be banned from using a hosepipe, hot tubs are not included in the list of prohibited activities, so they can be filled or topped up when appropriate.
