What are the main causes of a mains water leak?
Changes in water pressure:
Water mains can be put under a considerable amount of strain due to extreme surges in water pressure. In the worst case scenarios, water mains can rupture, causing a significant amount of damage.
The older the pipes, the more corrosion prone they can be, particularly if they were installed prior to the 1980s (they could potentially be made from cast iron). Modern-day materials tend to withstand movement better than cast iron pipework, including expansion and temperature changes.
Recent building work:
Sometimes unavoidable, contractors may accidentally hit or damage the water pipes in your property, which can result in pipe damage and leaking.
What are the symptoms for a mains water leak?
Puddles of water:
Unexpected puddles of water may be found around areas such as under the sink or the floor surrounding water outlets. You may even see water flooding on the street when there is a burst water mains.
Increased water bill with no explanation:
An increase in your normal water bill is an indicator that there is something wrong. This could mean that you are losing water without even being aware of the issue.
Low water pressure:
Low water pressure can be a sign of both a mains water leak and also a blockage in the waterline.
