Prevent Damage from Leaks

In Tips, Waterby JennyLeave a Comment

If you have received a bill that shows a larger amount of usage than normal it may be because you have a water leak. Before giving us a call it’s best to try the following steps:

Step 1 – Make sure all your appliances (like the washing machine) and taps are switched off.
Step 2 – Find your water meter, it is usually near your front door.
Step 3 – Read all of the dials on your meter – small leaks will show on your dials not numbers.
Step 4 – Wait 30 minutes, then take another reading.

If the numbers and dials haven’t changed, you probably don’t have a leak.

If they have changed, you now know that water is coming in to your home and escaping from somewhere other than an outlet.

If you’re in Islington, City of London, Westminster, Camden, Hackney or surrounding areas give Farringdon Plumbers a call now on 0770 220 8429 or click here to message us.
