Declaration

In submitting this form I confirm that:

  • All information provided is correct to the best of my knowledge. If any information is incorrect, I’m aware that it could cause a delay in completing my connection, or the withdrawal of any agreement from United Utilities to complete the connection.

  • I understand all pipework will need to comply with the current Water Supply Regulations 1999 and if I use a WIAPS approved plumber they can supply a certificate. If I use a non-WIAPS approved plumber United Utilities will need to inspect the pipework before it can be connected and, if the first inspection fails, a charge may be applied for subsequent inspections.

  • I understand that the connection will take up to six weeks from the date United Utilities inspects it or receives the WIAPS certificate. I understand it can take longer in some circumstances ie if major work is needed on the United Utilities’ water network, or more assessments or permits are needed.

  • If my house is on a common supply (a water pipe that supplies water to two or more properties using a shared stop tap), I will be responsible for the disconnection of the existing supply.

Help to save water where you can

We’re all enjoying the hot weather but with more of us at home we’re seeing big increases in water demand that may lead to low water pressure in some areas. Our key workers are working around the clock pumping extra water into the network but we’re asking our customers to help save water where they can. Together we can make a big difference. 

You can help by saving water where you can, on average each person uses 142 litres per day and there are some really easy ways to save.
