Am I responsible for my water supply pipes?

Yes - the water supply pipe is the pipe that brings drinking water into your home from our water main in the street. You are responsible for the section of this pipe that runs from the property boundary into your home. Sometimes, several properties can share a supply pipe, which is when the rules on ownership and responsibility can become more complicated. 

If you would like to discuss the ins and outs of pipe ownership in more detail with a member of our team, please phone us on 0345 672 3723. You can also find more information here.
