Johannesburg - Most suburbs of Tshwane were without water on Tuesday following problems with the Palmiet pump station, the city said.

"The situation should be normal late at night as it is taking long to feed the entire Gauteng system, which supplies water to the City of Johannesburg, the City of Ekurhuleni, and the City of Tshwane."

There had been problems with Gauteng's water supply since last Monday.

Four pump stations were affected at different times.

Cable theft early on Monday left the Palmiet pump station unable to operate, but power was restored later that day.

The reservoirs affected were Pretoria One, Two and Three, Rooihuiskraal, Brakfontein, Loulardia, Erasmia, The Reeds, Laudium, Akasia, Magalies, Constantia Park, Pretoria, Waterkloof, Lotus Gardens, Soshanguve, and Mabopane.

Ga-Rankuwa, Atteridgeville, Pierre van Ryneveld, Monument Park, Klapperkop, Clifton, and Hartbeeshoek were also affected.

The reservoirs not affected were Grootfontein, Elarduspark, Garsfontein, Parkmore, and Koedoesnek.

"The city apologises for the inconvenience caused to the affected residents."
