I'm sure they'd love to because it's been determined a lot of water is being wasted through leakage, but these pipes were put in long, long ago. All the streets would need to be dug up, and our water cut off (well, more than it is now). As Maria said, you can flush it, but the consequences aren't always pretty; in fact, it's an experience you'll never forget.

you can try flushing it - beware of the results (as i have seen for myslef)


I only hope my sabbatical can be 1/10 as fun, history-making, fulfilling, and adventurous as yours. You did it right. I need to start planning!
