Find out what to do when you discover a leak and who should fix it.
Leaks at home
Leaks in or on your property are your responsibility.
Our step-by-step guide advises what to do when you get a leak at home. This includes identifying leaks, checking pipe responsibility and arranging repair.
It also covers telling us your leak is fixed, claiming leak allowance and what happens if you don't fix your leak.
Leaks on public pipes
We look after the public water pipes under roads and pavements.
Over 95% of leaks are never seen by customers as they’re often deep underground. Our field teams work 24/7 to locate as many leaks as possible.
On average, we're fixing more than 1,000 leaks per week. You can help us by reporting public leaks when you see them.
