What to Do About Burst Water Mains
We’re often asked what you should do if you suddenly find that you’ve got a burst water main outside your home. After all, this is just as much of an emergency as a plumbing or drainage issue inside the house, isn’t it?
It is true that having a burst water main outside your property is an emergency. However, it’s not one that you have to deal with yourself. As water mains fall outside of your property boundary, they are not your responsibility to have unblocked or repaired. This is a job for your local water company, which will change depending on where you are in the UK. If you own a property in Hastings, for instance, the company you’ll need to speak to about a burst water main is Southern Water.
How to Report a Burst Water Main
Every water authority in the country should have its own website. There, you will quickly be able to report any burst water main near your property and they’ll be able to send someone out to quickly take a look.

How can I keep my pipes from bursting?
There are a few things you can do to keep your pipes from bursting. These mainly involve making sure your pipes don’t freeze up during the winter, as this is a common problem and cause of plumbing emergencies. When the water inside the pipe freezes, the pipes will expand and crack, causing them to burst under the pressure.
To protect your pipes and to stop this from happening, you should always make sure your pipes are well-insulated. If you have a water tank or pipes in the loft, you can even open the loft hatch to let the warm air flow through. It’s also recommended that you leave the heating on low while you’re away on holiday over the winter and let a friend or neighbour have a spare key so they can check on your property. If you’re going to be away for a long time you should also think of turning off the water and draining the system so there’s no water left in your pipes.
You should always know where your stopcock is indoors, as well, so that you can easily turn it off in the event of a plumbing emergency. In most houses, it should be located under the kitchen sink, but it will be nearby if it isn’t. Stopcocks can be turned off by turning them clockwise.
What should I do if a pipe bursts in my home?
If the worst has already happened and a pipe has burst in your home, you’ll need to start by switching the water off at the stopcock. After this, you should open all your taps in order to limit flooding and use thick towels to soak up the water. If the pipe is in your ceiling, you may need to put a bucket underneath any drips coming through and limit the amount of damage done to your property.
Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to leave it to the professionals to make sure the pipe is fixed. Contact a trusted emergency plumber to carry out the repair work you’ll need and your home should soon be back to normal.Contact the team
