How can I check if I have a water service pipe leak?

The first sign of a hidden problem with a water service pipe is often an unusually high rate of water usage, which can be identified by checking your water meter, or by noticing that your water bills are much more expensive than usual.

If you suspect that you have a leak, you can conduct the following initial check:

  • Turn all your taps off
  • Listen to your supply pipe – if you can hear water flowing, this may indicate a leak

Other indications include:

  • Reduced water pressure coming from your kitchen tap
  • An unusually lush or long patch of grass in your front garden, when the rest of the lawn is dry
  • A patch of water on your tarmac, particularly on an otherwise dry day

If you suspect that your water service pipe system has developed a leak, it’s best to seek out a fast and effective water leak detection service as soon as possible.

Who is responsible for clean water service pipe repairs?

Determining who is responsible for carrying out your water service pipe repairs depends on the location of the leak, and the type of pipe that has been affected:

  • Water service pipes are the pipework that transport clean drinking water from the main carrier pipe to each individual property, and are the responsibility of the property owner.
  • Water mains pipes are large-diameter pipes that carry and distribute water around the national network. These are the responsibility of the water company.

When you locate a water service pipe leak, it’s therefore important to call the right people to help:

  • If the leak is located between your external stop valve and internal stop valve, call an expert clean water pipe repair service provider like Lanes for Drains. If a relevant policy is in place, this can be handled via an insurer.
  • If the leak is located after the internal stop valve, call a qualified plumber. If a relevant policy is in place, this can also be handled via an insurer.
  • If you are unsure whether the leak is on your property or whether you are responsible, contact your local water authority to investigate this further for you.
