Mains water leaks can be costly.
And they’re sometimes difficult to detect without the right equipment.
Look out for the following:
- Higher water meter readings – meter turning when water not being used in the property!
- Higher water bills
Other signs will emerge as excess underground water can cause:
- Unpleasant smells – mould forms over time
- Cracked pavements near your property
- Visible potholes, with water showing outside the property
The good news
A simple pressure test, leak detection, or meter test often unearths the problem.
Plus, buildings and contents insurance may well cover drainage leaks and burst pipes. In fact, they account for 1 in 4 claims.
If in doubt, call us out today.
