Essex and Suffolk Water Problems

Having a good understanding of potential Essex and Suffolk Water problems can mean getting the issue sorted quicker. Let's take a look at how to deal with the two potentially major Essex and Suffolk Water problems.

Essex and Suffolk Water Leak

The key thing to do if you spot an Essex & Suffolk Water leak outside your home is to report it. First of all, you should check the company website or Twitter, in case it has already been reported. If it hasn't, you should either report the leak through the Essex and Suffolk Water community portal website or, alternatively, by calling the leakage phone number 0800 526 337.

Essex and Suffolk Water No Water

Before jumping the gun and calling about an Essex and Suffolk Water no water issue, you must follow these water supply troubleshooting steps.

  1. Check if there is any water coming from your kitchen tap. If there's even just a small drizzle, you need to check that your stop tap is open first. This will solve the no water problem in most cases.
  2. If there's not even a drop coming through, check whether the problem is affecting your cold water supply. If it's only affecting your hot water supply, you will need to call a plumber since the issue does not stem from ES Water.
  3. If there's no water, double-check the stop tap again to see if it is open or not. If this does not solve the issue, then you should check the area map on the ES Water website to see if there is planned maintenance or an outage affecting your area.
  4. If you have followed all these steps and you still have no water, close your stop tap (until the water supply is restored) and call 0345 782 0999.
