    External Water Leak - Whos responsible? Water Authority or me? 8th Jun 10 at 11:04 AM
    Hello team,

    i have a water leak, house cellar is constantly flooding, have isolated internal stopcock but water still leaking, i can hear a faint rushing noise under the kitchen units. Its an old property and i cant find the external stopcock i am fairly convinced the leak is between the external and internal stopcocks or poss between the main and the external (if only i could find it).

    Question is at what point is the leak my responsibility and at what point the water companies? Also i have heard if the pipework needs replacing (lead) then the water company will stump up £100 towards the cost, is this true.

    Any help or advice would be gratefully received, also even to do with locating the external stopcock.

    Many Thanks
