Some of the most common claims we receive involve incidents caused by escape of water in the home. Escape of water is the insurance industry's name for when a leak in the home damages property or possessions.
Escape of water can cause considerable damage to your home and cost £1,000's to repair. Follow our do's and don'ts below to help keep your home safe.
If you're away visiting friends and family or off on holiday, make sure you always turn your water off at the mains. During winter, we also recommend keeping your central heating on low and opening your loft hatch so warm air can get to your pipes. If you do want to leave your heating off, drain your whole system and switch the water off at the mains.
