Hello all, I wanted to ask, more needed if anyone knew of an outdoor water point in the Eastwood Nottinghamshire area. A couple of months ago I came out of a long term relationship and moved full time into my Motorhome. everything is going well however my only issues is resupplying my water. I usually do it at family’s house in Yorkshire but my main one was at work which sadly now my employer has refused me to do, hence why I’m running low regularly. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, thanks Dave.

Any garage/dealership will have an outside tap for washing their cars.

I've only ever been refused once when I've asked if I can top up my water tank (as well as my fuel tank). I'd always put a couple of quid in their charity box too if they had one.

If you're truly stuck and they say no, go back when they're closed. :devilish:

I note that there are both Asda and Morrison's petrol stations in the vicinity.

Both companies often have a tap at their sites. Well worth a look.

I'd try the hand car wash people at garden centres or tesco pay an amount to car cleaner/washer easy money for them and just fill the tank - personally i would not risk trespassing on a property to basically steal water and end up getting caught or someone reporting me because a security camera has caught me on film that could be more trouble than it is worth

Get caught everyone is happy as you would already know the consequencies and the risk involved - worst case scenario a day in court and a fine

Ok but you will be on CCTV including your registration

I know the job market is not good at present but your employer refused you??!! Can't you offer to pay for the cost of the water?

How much is a 100 lts of water? . Genuine, question
Using bottled water £8.50 for 100 litres and that can be still or carbonated fizzy water in 2 litre bottles :)

So please lets have a little bit less about stealing water :(

If you employ more than one how can you give one water without giving the others something to the same value. He obviously doesn't want to pay for it because you can get water easily by offering to pay

Try cemeteries and Churchyards for a water tap (used for flowers) - do taste it before filling your tank though! :)

Thats still stealing water it's not there for filling motorhome tanks and most would be on a metered supply
