OLDSMAR - For Oldsmar natives, the Peterson family, a weekend without water is the first in more than 40 years in the city.
"It is hard to deal with this, but what are you going to do?" said Joe Peterson.
Joe Peterson, his dad and uncle spent Sunday filling up containers full of pool water to take to relatives and friends so they could flush their toilets, while they wait for the city to turn their water back on.
It's been two days since the city first lost water pressure. Officials said about 14 thousand were affected including the Petersons.
"We are just trying to be able to flush our toilets," Joe Peterson said.
Sunday afternoon the city found what it had been looking for, they said an eight inch pipe near Tampa Road burst, causing the leak and reducing water pressure.
City officials said they didn't know where the problem was until a man on a dirt bike called them.
"We did helicopter flyovers even valve isolations. Oldsmar is built on it's citizens. We are by, for and of the people. This is just another example of the city coming together," said Ann Stephan with the city.
The city is now working to re-pressurize the water system, as residents continue to wait.
"It has been a little bit of a challenge taking our baths in the pool," said Jim Wiseman.
They are making due, any way they can.
"You do have to stop and think every time you go to do something. You think about what you are going to do to get cleaned," said Maggie Danielson.
The city has restored water to all residents.
The city reminds residents to boil their water at a rolling boil for one minute before drinking or cooking until the city lifts the advisory.
