Water Leak Repairs


If the leak cannot be contained and/or it is causing damage to the property (especially if it is penetrating into an electrical fitting) it is classified as an emergency and should be reported as soon as possible.

In those circumstances you should turn the water off immediately using the stopcock. If the leak is coming from the above or adjacent property, you should try to contact those occupants immediately.

How to turn off your water supply

1) Locate and use your internal mains water stop cock. The inside stop valve is often located where the water first enters your property. Generally this is straight to the cold kitchen tap, so the valve is usually found under the kitchen sink.
2) Alternatively locate and use your external mains water stop cock. Please view our video on this page for help with this.

Next Steps:

1) Depending on the source of the leak, isolation the mains water supply to the property may or may not immediately stem the leak.
2) Try your best to contain the leak using buckets and towels
3) Contact Serviceteam to arrange for one of our plumbers to locate and repair the source of the leak
