Leaks and bursts?
A one off repair may suit your needs, especially as a short term solution. However, a leaking pipe indicates that the pipe has served its time. Fixing one leak, will often mean another will occur at a later date.
HOW TO TEST FOR A LEAK
If you have a water meter fitted outside your home, follow the steps below to check for a leak:
- Locate your external meter – it is usually fitted to the outside stop valve located either in your garden, driveway or footpath.
- Stop using water in the property – remember to turn off all water-using appliances, such as your washing machine and dishwasher.
- Turn off the inside stop valve – this can usually be found under the kitchen sink.
- Take a meter reading, including the digits in the red dials. If the dial is still recording water use, please double check that everything is switched off and there are no toilet cisterns filling up.
- Leave the stop valve shut and read the meter half an hour later. If the reading has changed, you may have a leak.
Alternatively, turn off any noisy appliances in the kitchen, put your ear on cold mains tap and listen carefully for a noise that sounds like a toilet cistern filling – this can be an indication of a leak.
