Leak Repair Contractors
We want to do everything we can to help our customers when they experience a leak, this is why we have put together a list of contractors who may be able to help you detect and repair it.
We have split the list by geographical area and you can download a copy by clicking on the links on the right of this page. If you have a home or specific plumbing insurance policy you should check whether this covers leak repair. If it does contact your insurance company who should be able to arrange to repair the leak for you.
We have provided details below on the criteria we use for adding contractors to the advisory lists, and we periodically review them to ensure they are up to date. These lists are in place to assist customers in finding a suitable contractor, and you should check that the contractor you use is suitably qualified to carry out work on your property. South West Water is not responsible for any third party contractor and inclusion of any contractors' details on the lists should not be taken as a recommendation or endorsement of their services.
When looking for a contractor we recommend that you get more than one quote as prices and response times may vary. Certified contractors in your local area can also be found on the WaterSafe and the Water Industry Approved Plumbers Scheme (WIAPS) websites.
WaterSafe is a dedicated online search facility bringing together thousands of qualified contractors employed by plumbing businesses from the seven existing Approved Contractors' Schemes across the UK. To search for a plumbing business near you follow this link.
The Water Industry Approved Plumbers' Scheme (WIAPS) is run by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) on behalf of the water industry. This is one of the seven existing Approved Contractors' Schemes in the UK. Not all plumbing businesses registered with WIAPS have signed up to WaterSafe, so WIAPS may have additional qualified plumbers near you.
Search the WIAPS website.
