People living in Port Talbot have been left feeling frustrated after a water pipe that had been leaking for more than a month burst in the early hours of Sunday morning.
It flooded a nearby street and meant that people living in Aberavon were left with no water or low pressure in the hot weather at the weekend.
85-year-old Lil was woken by neighbours on Fenbook Close as the water swept through her home.
Her daughter-in-law Julie, who has been dealing with the aftermath, says that it will be a few months before Lil can move back into her home.
She said: "We haven't managed to save much furniture, there's not much that can be saved.
"The kitchen's gone. So she'll have to have a new kitchen, all electrical goods, new three piece suite, new carpets and I'm not sure about the walls...so it's going to take about three weeks to dry out now."
But her family say she's trying to remain positive.
"All she was saying was that nobody got hurt. But I mean it's stressful isn't it? Well, it's going to be a stressful time from now on."
Local people have been left feeling frustrated after they say the leaking pipe was reported to Welsh Water numerous times over a month ago.
Welsh Water says it was made aware of the leak earlier this month and had sent a team to investigate it.
It says the pipe burst before repairs could take place and and that it is sorry for the disruption and inconvenience that it caused.
A spokesperson said: "We were made aware of the leak near to Seaway Parade in the Port Talbot area earlier this month and had sent a team to investigate it.
The pipe unfortunately did burst in the meantime. We are sorry for this and the disruption and inconvenience the subsequent burst caused."
