Apology re stealth, GDC
I wish to apologise to GDC for insinuating that a water meter had been secretly installed with the new Toby. That is not the case.
My suspicion was misplaced; I am now reliably informed that the device in question is a non-return valve to prevent back-flow in the event of a loss of mains pressure.
It is quite possible that, in due course, water meters will be introduced for domestic premises but I am not familiar with current GDC policy on this matter; I just expect there to be “open and transparent” consultation before it does eventuate.
