Self lay development

We understand that some Developers prefer to use a Self-lay provider (SLP) to install self lay mains and/or service connections.

Please be aware that as of 1st April 2017, if you are a non household customer or applying for a temporary building supply, at the point of connection you will need to have selected a retailer.

To read more and for guidance on selecting a retailer go to

We are fully prepared to assist Developers when using SLP’s as an alternative to us constructing new mains.

Please refer to the Water UK Self-lay 'Code of Practice' here.
