What if I find a water leak in my home?

There are steps that you should take if you find a major water leak in your home. If you find a major water leak:

  • turn the water off at the mains and the stop cock.
  • 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.
