Fixing the problem

In most cases, the part of the service pipe taking water from the Water Authority stopcock into the house belongs to the property owner.

It is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the supply pipe in good order in the same way as the internal plumbing in a house.

Modern houses have an independent water supply into the property however older properties may have a shared supply pipe for more than one house where the responsibility is then shared.

With age, ground movement, and reaction to certain soil types the existing pipework may leak under pressure. In some cases, this leak will surface in an area on the customer’s property.

Essential Water Services Ltd offers a service to locate (see leak detection service) and repair underground supply pipes using efficient and cost-effective methods.

This includes a full stock of resources and fittings at hand at any time for use in emergency call-outs. Supply pipe repairs cover up to 1″ diameter pipes, for services greater than this see mains work.
