Hi my name is ***** ***** lets see if we can get you sorted in the shortest possible time.
If you are getting no water to any taps and the water level is not dropping in the large tank then the outlets from the must be blocked.
Are you able to get up and shine a torch in and the quality of the water at the bottom?
