In W. Mani, we usually get plenty of winter rain, however, there is little collection and storage of winter rain, and the water distribution system is old and full of holes, so a lot of water runs to waste. Also, many people use water extravagantly. The result, some people in West Mani, especially those living in hillside properties, that are not near village springs, are without water for days, even weeks at a time, in summer.
As many people have had difficulty getting information or advice, we are working with the Dimos and others, to provide information about the water supply, on the Parea site. We are adding to this page as we get information.
Cold weather tips for protecting your water supply** If it is forecast for cold below 0 °C - you might be able to avoid your house meter and your water taps & pipes from having a problem. Leave a tap on in each line of your water supply - only a very slight drip will allow the expanded frozen water to push water out of the pipes to leave room for the frozen water - so your pipes should not break.
Make sure your solar water heater has its yearly check - cleaning out the salts from the system, and topping up with the proper anti-freeze for solar systems. Even a short freeze can break a water solar system. (Also cleaning out the salts and changing the rod inside helps have more hot water - greater efficiency - therefore less need for an electrical boost of power.)
Protect your automatic watering system with a covering - heavier market bags, might be ok, as long as the wind doesn't break the bags. However, a plastic flowerpot cut tightly to fit over the system and pipe, is enough protection to prevent them breaking. Maybe better to have both, if you are in an area at higher altitude, and had more frequent snow, than closer to sea level. (February 2016)
