A fire service connection is a water connection for the sole purpose of fire-fighting.
The fire service connection application process follows the same process for water and sewerage connections.
The key differences are that:
SA Water does not accept liability for flow rates and water pressure that do not meet the minimum requirement of the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service or the Country Fire Service.
SA Water is not obliged to design, construct or maintain its water supply network for fire-fighting purposes. SA Water complies with any requirement or scheme established under section 98 of the Water Industry Act 2012.

Customers in the southern suburbs through to the Adelaide CBD may notice a temporary change to the colour of their water. The water remains safe to drink.
Suburbs affected may include:
Clapham, Pasadena, Cumberland Park, Westbourne Park, Kingswood, Goodwood, Keswick, Unley, Panorama, Belair and Adelaide CBD.
We have begun flushing parts of the surrounding network as a result of new pipe work being installed to support the South Road Darlington Upgrade works. We will continue to test the water quality and are in contact with SA Health. All test results are compliant with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. At this stage we anticipate the water will return to normal by late this evening.
If you have concerns, please contact us on 1300 SA WATER.
