There are four steps to make a South Staffs Water complaint.
- Initial complaint
- Escalate to the Service Delivery Team Manager
- Escalate to the Consumer Council for Water
- Escalate to the Water Redress Scheme
You must follow this procedure when making a South Staffs Water complaint.
South Staffs Water Complaint - Step 1
The first step is to contact South Staffs Water customer service, who will register your complaint and try to resolve it at the first point of contact.
When this isn’t possible, they will take your contact details and arrange a time to call you back once they have looked at your complaint. They aim to resolve your complaint within five working days.
You can claim £30 compensation if South Staffs Water does not respond to your written complaint within 10 working days.
South Staffs Water Complaint - Step 2
After South Staffs Water has gotten back to you about your complaint, you can escalate your complaint to their Service Delivery Team Manager if you are still unsatisfied. They will review your complaint and get back to you with a final decision on behalf of South Staffs Water.
You can escalate your complaint by writing to their address:
South Staffs Water
South Staffs Water Complaint - Step 3
Should you not be happy with the response from the Service Delivery Team Manager, you can take your complaint to the Consumer Council for Water (CCW), who are akin to an ombudsman for water.
They will be happy to look at your complaint as long as you have followed step 1 and step 2, and your case has been ongoing for over eight weeks.
You can get in touch with CCW in the following ways:

The last step for a South Staffs Water complaint is when you are not happy with the decision that CCW has provided.
Once you have the CCW decision, you can take your complaint to the Water Redress Scheme, (WATRS) who will offer a final, binding decision and is an alternative to going to a tribunal or court.
The decision the WATRS makes is binding on the water company and they must follow that decision.
