Water leaks

No one wants to waste water. A dripping tap can waste over 1,000 litres (one cubic metre) of water each day, while your average 5kg washing machine uses about 120 litres for a single wash.

Whose responsibility?

Every property has a water toby, like a tap or a valve, which carries water from the public water supply into your property.

We're responsible for everything up to and including the toby. Any problem beyond the toby is the responsibility of the property owner.

If you have a broken water toby or you notice a water leak on Council property, please call us or fill out our Fix It form.
