I'd go back to them and push this.
You have obviously got a telephone muppet and not somebody who actually knows about the ban!
I've found this as well today:
What is a hosepipe and sprinkler ban?
A hosepipe and sprinkler ban is when a water company prohibits the use of water through a hosepipe or sprinkler to water private gardens or wash private cars. Commercial activities are not affected by these restrictions. This is defined in law in Section 76 of the Water Industry Act 1991.
People who have taken water from their own personal well or borehole are not affected.
What if people use hosepipes to wash patios or fill paddling pools (Which are not covered by the ban)?
The hosepipe ban does only cover washing private cars or watering private gardens, however we all have a responsibility to preserve supplies. The ban has been imposed to protect our supplies and we are advising everyone to remember water is a precious and finite resource.
