Water Main Repair

A burst in your water mains supply between the street and your meter is the responsibility of the water supply company; but the pipe between the meter and your house is your responsibility.

Usually the first thing you’ll know of a leak in your mains pipe is a soggy patch of lawn or an abnormally high water bill.  That’s when you need to call L A Hughes.  We’ll come straight around and confirm if there is a leak.  Then we’ll arrange for the leak to be located and repair it.

The cost of the repair will often be less than the cost of the water you’ve been wasting!


How to Tell if you have a Leak in your Water Mains

Turn off all taps and appliances inside and outside your home.  Locate your water meter and look to see if the counter or any of the dials are moving.

If they are, it shows that, although you have no taps on, there is still water flow through your meter.  The pipe between the water meter and you home must be leaking and you need to call L A Hughes.
