The availability of water in distribution systems as determined by nodal pressures is a topic that deserves more attention. Therefore, we are grateful to Gupta and Bhave for highlighting some of the relevant issues as they relate to our paper on the hydraulic redundancy and realistic modelling of water distribution systems. The discussers have made a contribution towards clarifying some of the terminology and their effort is commendable. This article discusses these comments.
