How do I lay my water pipe?

Laying your water pipe

The water service pipe should be laid between 750mm- 1350mm below ground, on a bed of sand, ducted and insulated as it enters the property and should be fitted with an internal stop tap and a compression fitted cap end. It's most commonly laid on private land up to the highway boundary. We can give you more detail during the site visit if you need it.

For further guidelines please see our new connections guidance notes.
