Fixing the leaks on pipes to your home or business
Around 70% of water lost from leakage comes from the pipes that deliver water to your home or business. That's why our skilled teams are working day and night, utilising the latest technology to fix 660 leaks per week. Through technology we can even detect some before they happen and identifying and prioritising hidden leaks that would have previously gone undetected for some time.
We carry out approximately 32,000 repairs each year on pipes to your home or business, saving the equivalent to 17 Olympic size swimming pools of water per week!
Help us to help you
We're doing all we can to prevent leaks, but if you see one while you're out and about, please let us know by reporting it to us so we can get to work fixing it.
Once the leak has been reported to us we follow the steps below to get it fixed. Sometimes repairs can take longer than we’d like, as we need to work closely with the council or local authorities to have measures such as traffic management put in place.
