If you suspect you have a leak on pipe work which is your responsibility, you must get it fixed as a matter of urgency, contact a recognised plumber to investigate and fix it for you.
The following may indicate the presence of a leak:
- An unexplained high consumption reading on your water bill.
- The sound of water moving through the pipes at night or when no water is being consumed.
- Damp, discoloured patches and/or mould on carpets, ceilings, floors or walls.
- Reduced or falling water pressure.
- A damp patch appearing on the ground or flowers and grass growing better than those around them. Especially, where this lies above the route of the supply pipe.
