Water leaks in your home

If you find a major water leak:

  • turn the water off at the mains and the stopcock
  • turn the electricity off at the mains if the leak could come into contact with electrical appliances
  • turn on all the taps in the kitchen and bathroom to drain the pipes more quickly
  • keep children away from the water if it is hot
  • switch off the central heating if this is the problem

Report the problem to the Repairs Service on 01438 242666.

If you have an emergency out of hours call 01438 314963.
