Yep we have one of the most rainy countries in the world but our water infrastructure is pretty dated hasn't been updated in the last 40 years

I only use filtered water, I never trust the water coming out of my tap to drink.

Ged, are you having to boil your water you use for consumption?

Since the water in the pipage stood still for quite some time there's a real possibility of contamination Ged and the water won't be potable until it is flushed by fresh disinfected (read chlorinated) water!
