Water leaks could hit homeowners in the pocket

A water leak is currently angering residents in Buckhurst Hill, who have watched a pavement outside their homes flood over recent weeks.

According to the East London and West Essex Guardian Series, Elgar Close is suffering with a major problem as water overflows the street. People living in the road have told the newspaper water has been pouring from the ground close to their flats for approximately two months.

Excessive water could be a threat to homes as it can cause damage and have an impact on bills. Locals suggested neither Thames Water nor Sanctuary Housing have so far attempted to fix the problem. Last month, insurance provider esure warned of another water-based issues homeowners must contend with – burst pipes. Calling in a professional plumber might be a good place to start for any problem of these types, as a tradesman will be able to carry out emergency repairs and seek a long-term solution.
