What happens next
If we need to contact you, we'll aim get back to you within two days and to resolve fully within five days. It may take up to ten days during our busiest periods.
Hopefully, we’ll resolve your issue first time. If we haven’t, we’ll be happy to review your case. Just let us know if you’d like us to do this.
Our Customer Solution team in Wrexham will carry out a review and get back to you within 10 working days to let you know the outcome. There may be occasions where we need to chat through your case with you face to face. Where possible, we will try to arrange a visit.
Where possible, we will try to arrange a visit or you can come to our office to speak to any one of the team between the hours of 8 am and 4.30 pm Monday to Friday.
If we’ve reviewed your case, but you still think we could have done more to help, or if we haven't been able to sort things out within 8 weeks, we will let you know that you can get in touch with the Consumer Council for Water who will help resolve the issue where they can.
You can write to them at:
Consumer Council for Water
23 Stephenson Street
You can also call them Monday to Friday on 0300 034 2222 or visit their website.
If you’ve been through the first three stages of this process and your complaint still hasn’t been resolved, it’s worth getting in touch with the Water Industry Redress Scheme (WATRS).
This is a helpful, voluntary team that deals with the few customer complaints that aren’t resolved. They’ll provide an independent decision, which is impartial and means they should be able to help you, without the need for you to go to court or a tribunal.
You can find guidance and apply for help from Water Industry Redress Scheme on their website.
You can ask for the application form to be sent to you by emailing email@example.com or calling 0207 520 3801.
Alternatively, you can write to them at:
International Dispute Resolution Centre
70 Fleet Street
