- Who is responsible for the pipework?
- We are responsible for the large undergound pipes that carry water around our area of supply. You are responsible for some, or all, of the pipework from your boundary and onwards into your home. If a water main is laid on private land, the property owner may be responsible for the full length of the supply pipe. The diagram below shows this in more detail.
- I share my supply with my neighbours, can I get my own separate supply?
- Yes you can. Ring our Developer Services department on: 0845 3451399 to ask for a quote.
- Why have I received a Defective Fittings Notice from you?
- If you have received a notice this means that you have either an underground leak on your supply pipe or we have discovered defective fittings that require attention. Although repairs are your responsibility, we are obliged to tell you if we discover a problem. Find out more by downloading Leaks and Your Responsibilities. There's also much more information in our Code of Practice for Leakage. If the leak is on the supply pipe we offer a limited free repair service which you may be eligible for. (Subject to conditions)
