Leaks are a common and challenging issue since millions of properties in the UK are served by thousands of kilometers of pipe, all of varying age and condition. “In [this region] alone, we look after more than 8,500 kilometers (5,282 miles) of pipe, and only about half the leaks in those pipes are visible, which means it’s complicated to pinpoint where [the rest] are,” said Colin Day of Essex and Suffolk Water. The subject of wasted water has received a lot of attention this year. Following the summer drought, localized hosepipe prohibitions are still in effect for three firms: South East Water, South West Water, and Yorkshire Water, according to Water UK. According to Ofwat, 20% of consumers in England and Wales are having trouble paying their water bills in the current economic downturn.
