Technicians from Essex & Suffolk Water visited the site this morning but were unable to find the cause of the outage.
A spokesman for the company said: “Technicians have taken readings from the water mains in the immediate area – these all showed normal operating pressures.
“Initially, we thought there might have been a leak on our water mains, but monitoring by the technicians has found that not to be the case.
“We would advise customers with no water supply to contact their managing agents.”
The estate is managed by Chamonix Estates. A spokesman for the company said investigations were ongoing but it did not know the cause of the water outage.
