Homes and property Dampness and leaks

Stop bursts and leaks

Winter weather can burst your pipes and ruin your home. Download the 'Protect your home from frozen pipes' leaflet and follow the tips to keep the warmth in and the plumber out.

Prevention is better than cure

Find your stop tap - the tap that turns off the main water supply. Find it now rather than look for it when there's water pouring everywhere. It's probably in the kitchen near or under the sink.
