Leaking Taps/Water Issues - Turn the water off at the mains located in a box, usually at the end of your driveway near the street. There is a tap, turn this off.
Power Issues - Check the meter box and reset the switch that has tripped, individually unplug your appliances and keep trying to reset the tripped switch.
Electric Hot Water - If your supply of hot water is not hot or does not seem to last as long as it should, your hot water system may need topping up. Locate the filler valve on the side of the hot water system and lift the floppy lever until water flows from the overflow. Repeat this process every few months. Otherwise, check the power is switched on; has the power box tripped the switch or blown a fuse; or has your shower routine changed or increased (tank capacity and/or tariff rates will affect this). Remember in winter, efficiency of the tank is less than in summer and the water will cool quicker.
Please follow the above procedures before requesting maintenance.
