Water Main Repairs

If left unattended, a burst water main can wreak havoc in your home. 

While the large underground water mains in your area are the responsibility of the water company, you are responsible for your home’s plumbing and drainage systems.

So, if you’ve woken up one morning to a swamped garden, or you’re noticing signs of a leaking pipe in your home, then it’s time to call in a water main repair service. 

When to call UKOOA for water main repairs

From pipe leaks which can leave stains on your walls, to full-blown water main bursts that can ruin your garden and surrounding area, here are some signs that it’s time to call in UKOOA’s team of pro plumbers

We can get that pipe leak sorted and the water main repaired before it causes further damage to your property. 


Flooding is the most obvious and immediately concerning sign that your water mains are failing. This can happen both in and around your home and is something you’ll find impossible to ignore.

Flooding in your home or garden is likely to be caused by a pipe that’s burst completely. While it’s natural to panic if you find yourself in this situation, UKOOA is here to help.

We offer emergency plumbing services for exactly this kind of situation. Just get in touch with our team who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we’ll aim to get out to you within just half an hour.  

Strange noises

Whether it’s clanging, rumbling or grinding sounds, vocal pipes should never be ignored. Strange noises coming from your pipes could be a precursor to something more serious down the line.

Luckily, with our team of experts on hand to identify any signs of leaks or blockages, you’ll be fixed up in no time. 

Damp patches on walls and ceilings 

Damp patches appearing on walls and ceilings are a telltale sign that there’s a pipe leak in your home. If this is something you’ve noticed, it’s best to give us a shout sooner rather than later so we can prevent further damage.


When you have a leaking pipe, the water produced can ravage the surrounding area with mould. 

With some types of mould being hazardous to human and animal health, it’s essential that you secure the help of a team of professionals to remove the mould in a safe and permanent fashion. Failure to do so can result in the mould quickly returning and leaving you right back where you started.

Our expert plumbers can get to the root of the problem and ensure that mould issues are a thing of the past.

Puddles of water

Aside from getting your socks soggy and being a trip hazard, puddles of water cropping up in places like your basement, beneath your sinks or around your water main, could mean you have a leaky or burst pipe.

Loss of water pressure 

If you find that your showers or taps are producing dribbles of water instead of a strong flow, your pipes are probably the culprit. Our plumbers can make sure your water is running smoothly again in no time. 

Bad quality water  

There are few things more disconcerting than pouring yourself a glass of water, only to find it’s discoloured, murky, or foul-smelling. This can happen when the pipes are corroded, leaking or contaminated. Whatever the cause, we can ensure your water is clean again in no time. 

Unexpectedly high water bills

If your water bills have suddenly shot up, then this could indicate a pipe leak, meaning you’re being charged for water you aren’t actually using. Fortunately, our team is highly experienced when dealing with leak detection and repair

If you’ve noticed any of the above issues in your home, it’s important to shut off your water supply as soon as possible. This can help prevent any further damage to your home. You’ll then need to arrange a pipe or water main repair with us so that we can get things back up and running.
