Who is responsible for clean water mains pipe repairs?

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

  • Water mains supply pipes are a network 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 a water service pipe leak is located, it is important to call the right people to help:

  • If the leak is located between an external and internal stop valve, call an expert clean water pipe repair service provider like Lanes. 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 the client is unsure whether the leak is on their property, or whether they are responsible, they should contact their local water authority to investigate this further.
