How do I get a new water connection to my house?
Getting a water supply at the right time during the construction of a new development is vital in your build plan. To ensure timescales are met, we provide an end-to-end service, meaning we’re there every step of the way.
All of our customers have one point of contact throughout, to help keep timescales to a minimum. Your account manager will manage the whole process for you. They will contact all of the required statutory bodies on your behalf, answer your queries and help with any hurdles you hit along the way. Simply get in touch today on 0161 549 8454 and we can begin the process right away.
We can provide you with a quote for a connection only, but you’ll have responsibility for:
- Onsite pipe laying
- Restoration of surface
What’s the process in getting a water supply?
Preparation for a water supply on private land may require you to lay the service pipework in conjunction with your water board. For your peace of mind, we provide a checklist in advance of our arrival onsite detailing exactly what is required from the customer before the work commences.
Some water connections require a water application fee, depending on your area. We can advise you on this and guide you through the whole process.
There are 6 steps to getting a new or replacement water connection:
- Courtesy site visit
- Water regulations inspection*
*We will arrange a water regulations inspection for all water connections, as the regulations and conditions surrounding the industry are complex. All pipework and plumbing must comply with Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999, which we adhere to throughout.

- We will assist in the preparation for Water Regulations Inspection – this is prior to the connection being made and must be passed by the local water board

- We can also arrange a temporary water supply for building sites or new builds
