Bristol water in the area service is designed to provide our customers with a one-stop portal for information about interruptions, repairs and street works across Bristol.

You will be able to register for information affecting selected postcodes, as well as being able to follow and share individual map items.

Additionally you will be able to report any leaks found either at home or while out in the streets.



LeakStop is a scheme offered by Bristol Water, which may be able to help you if a leak is detected on a pipe crossing your property boundary, up to the external wall of your house.

Even though a leak found here would usually be the responsibility of the homeowner, in certain conditions, we are able to offer one free repair and a further subsidised repair on the pipework to stop the leak. Any repairs we undertake as part of LeakStop are guaranteed for 12 months.

LeakStop doesn't apply for leaks found underneath a property. In these cases you will need to contact a plumber to repair the leak.

To be considered for LeakStop, you need to contact us within 5 working days of us notifying you of a leak at your property.

  • Providing one subsidised repair*
  • Work is guaranteed for 12 months

If you have an unmetered bill and a monthly payment arrangement in place, your annual bill is split over 10 monthly instalments: May to February. We do not take payments in March and April because during these months we generate bills for the forthcoming financial year.

If you have a metered bill and pay by a monthly budget arrangement we can take a payment each month of the year. We will automatically review your payments annually.

Charging for water services is a complex matter, involving both the law (primarily the 1991 Water Industry Act) and our economic regulator, the Water Services Regulation Authority, which is referred to as Ofwat.

Your supply is either unmetered or metered, and this normally determines the way we charge for your water supply.

Unmetered – we normally use the rateable value (RV) of your property and calculate the cost for the year in advance

Metered – we normally read the meter twice a year and you pay for the water you actually use
