Hard to believe that after the wettest
December on record you might find yourself
returning to work to face water cascading
from a burst pipe. Alternatively you may be
shivering as a result of a central heating
problem or worse...dealing with a gas leak.
The Association of Plumbing and Heating
Contractors (APHC) offer sound guidance on
how to reduce serious damage to your home or
work premises in the wake of any of those
problems. For example:
Major water leaks –
turn of the water supply at
either the main stop tap,
usually located in the
kitchen or the boundary
Smaller internal leaks – stop using isolation
valves next to the relevant appliance. Turn the
lever or use a screwdriver to stop water supply.
Hot water systems – to stop water entering the
hot water system find the gate valve (usually in
the airing cupboard), turn this off and turn on

any hot taps to empty the cylinder of water.
On a combi boiler the lever operated isolation
valve will be located under the boiler.
Gas leaks – turn gas off at
the meter using the
emergency control valve.
Open doors and windows
to ventilate the area.
Don’t smoke, use naked
flames or operate any
electrical switches. Call the emergency services
to report the leak on 0800 111 999 (24 hours)
