One of the biggest culprits for leaks in the home are modern push button toilet cisterns. Nearly 80% of all leaks reported to us last year were leaky loos!
A faulty cistern could be costing you as much as £400 a year in wasted water so it's really worth checking if this is the problem and getting it fixed.

Has your bill increased?
If you have a water meter and your bill has increased, there are a number of reasons for this.
It could be because you have a leak, but you may also be using a lot more water than you normally would and don't realise.
Common reasons include having more people living in your home (such as children home from University, or someone is ill or staying at home more), you've been making home improvements or your previous bill was estimated too low.
Could you have a leaking outdoor supply pipe?
If your meter is located outside your home and you've checked your internal plumbing for any leaks but found nothing, then you might have a leak on your outside supply pipe.
