We take leakage very seriously and thank you for wanting to report a leak.

We currently have a large number of leaks being reported due to the current weather conditions. The dramatic change in temperature can cause movements in the ground which impacts our mains. Although every leak is important we need to prioritise those leaks that are impact water supply to customers. During this period it may take longer than normal to repair reported leaks.

Please note; if you are wanting to report a severe leak, loss of pressure, no water, dangerous cover, or any operational emergency, please call our helpline on 0345 702 3797. The ‘Report a Leak’ service is solely for reporting visible leaks that Bristol Water may not be currently aware of.
