Classifications of Water Leaks

Depending on the source of the water leaks or water damage, they are classified into various categories. This helps to understand how to deal with the water and, importantly, understand the risks. A fresh / treated water leak is very different to a leak from sewer pipes – we understand this process very well and manage the risks and health & safety accordingly.

The different classifications of water are:

  • White Water – this is ‘clean’ treated water, usually from cold water feed pipes. It is at the safer end of the scale.
  • Grey Water – this is generally from basins, showers, baths, washing machines etc. This is clearly different to…
  • Black Water – this usually includes contaminated waste coming into contact with faeces / urine from toilet leaks etc. It is also water that has come into contact with external sources – for example, mud, dirt, rubbish etc.
  • Red Water – this is less common but it is water which includes or has come into contact with chemicals. Clearly this brings about a whole area of complexity and specialism depending on the chemical, the risks and if it is toxic etc.

Who is responsible for a water leak on commercial property?

Water Leak in Wall

To understand who is responsible for a water leak on commercial property you first need to understand the number of stakeholders involved their role in looking after, managing and (importantly) insuring the property. A commercial property may have an owner (freeholder and leaseholder possibly), property management company, maintenance company (or contractors), tenants, staff working onsite, visitors and customers. There is also the water company providing water to the property and the various insurance companies for each of these people. The key thing to understand where the leak is (where leak detection companies like us come in) and what the cause of it is. That will inform who is ultimately responsible.
