Burst Water Mains in Crawley
Sometimes, you may find a problem with your plumbing or drainage that’s actually being caused by a burst water main somewhere outside your property. When this happens, you will not need to get in touch with a professional plumbing or drainage service. This is because water mains are located outside your property boundary and are not your legal or financial responsibility.
The water mains in your area will be the responsibility of your local water authority to fix. You’ll need to get in touch with them (most have a system for this online). They’ll then send their own professional team to take a look at the water main and carry out any repairs that are necessary.
In Crawley, the local water authority is Southern Water.

How can I stop a pipe from bursting on my property?
There are some things you can do to prevent your pipes from bursting. Most of these involve making sure the pipes don’t freeze during the winter, as this is often a cause of later plumbing emergencies. When the water in the pipes freezes it will expand, causing the pipes to crack and burst under the pressure.
To stop this from happening, the first thing to do is to make sure your pipes are well-insulated. It’s also possible to let the warm air flow through from a loft hatch if you have a water tank or pipes in your attic. If you’re planning on being on holiday over the winter you should always let a friend or trusted neighbour have the key so they can check on your property. If you know you’ll be away for a long time you might also consider turning off the water and draining the system so there isn’t any water left in the pipes.
What can I do to stop drains from becoming blocked?
To help your drains stay free-flowing and to keep blockages from happening, you can make a number of small changes around your property. The first of these is making sure your outside drains are clean and cleared of silt, mud, and leaves on a regular basis. The second is ensuring that you’re only flushing waste and toilet paper down your toilet, and that other products such as nappies and sanitary pads are put in the bin.
The third thing you can do is make use of strainers in your kitchen sink and your shower tray. These will catch too-large particles of food or soap, as well as hair, and prevent them all from clogging up the drains.Contact the team
