Irish Water is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the water mains network. Homeowners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of all pipework in their home and on their property. This means that where a leak occurs in the home or within the property boundary, homeowners are responsible for arranging a repair.

Our First Fix Scheme is in place to support customers in reducing the water wasted through leaks on their property by repairing leaks on the external supply pipe.
