Water leaks and burst pipes are an unfortunate but common occurrence in Drumcondra and North Dublin. It’s a fairly common occurrence in the area due to the old network of pipes that the water system runs through. Leaks, bursts, and low water pressure also occur due to overuse.
What causes these leaks?
The cause of these leaks are usually from one or a combination of the following:
- The pipe’s network age since about half of the network is almost 50 years old
- Freezing pipes during winter or general cold season
- Day to day activity such as traffic, excavations, and excessive water pressure
Irish Water will always confirm when affected areas will experience these leaks. Supply disruption to homes in the following areas can occur: Drumcondra Road Upper, Artane, Cabra, Clontarf, Glasnevin, Fairview, Raheny, Whitehall, and its surrounding areas in Dublin. Traffic management systems during repair would be put into place.
Irish Water always aims to restore the water supply to affected areas as soon as possible and would request their customers to conserve water while these burst repairs are being done. They shared “we urge our customers to conserve water by not running taps when not needed, take showers instead of baths, and postpone the use of dishwashers and washing machines as necessary.
