Don't wait until you have an emergency to find your stop tap
Stop taps are often out of sight and probably out of mind. If you have an emergency, you’ll need to find it in a hurry to turn your water off.
Watch this video to find out where your water meter and stop tap are and how to keep them clear.
Keep your meter clear
Over time, your water meter can become hidden by a build-up of soil or by garden plants growing over it. This can really slow you down if you need to turn off your water in a hurry, and it can make the job of the meter reader difficult.
We recommend that you:
take a look at your meter every couple of weeks to make sure it’s clear and your meter is readable.
check your meter reading against your quarterly meter reading card that’s left in your letterbox.
