It is the responsibility of the owner to repair any leaks that occur on private property. It is the responsibility of Dublin City Council to repair leaks that occur outside the boundary. For further information see Who is responsible for the pipework coming into my property?
Leaks on private property can result in a significant loss of water and as a result may lead to poor pressure.
See Section 54 and 56 of the Water Services Act, 2007 and the Dublin City Council Water Byelaws for further information on responsibilities and penalties.
