You may have a leak if you notice:
Follow these steps to check for a leak if you have a meter:
Turn off all the appliances in your home that use water.
Locate your water meter and remove the lid.
Take a meter reading, noting down both the black and red numbers.
Wait for 30 minutes to one hour and check your meter again.
If the second reading is the same as the first, you don’t have a leak. If the second reading is higher, you may have a leak and you will need to locate it to work out who is responsible for fixing it.
Follow these steps to check for a leak if you don’t have a meter:
Locate your internal stop tap and check for a hissing and/or knocking noise.
Turn off your water supply by turning your stop tap clockwise.
Check your water supply is turned off by turning on your cold kitchen tap.
Check your stop tap again to see if you can still hear a hissing/and or knocking noise.
If you can still hear it, you may have a leak and you should contact a qualified plumber to come and check your property.
