    This would depend on the severity of the leak. If it was just a relatively small leak, 24 hours notice should be served first. If however, it is a massive leak causing serious damage to property in a short space of time (e.g. a burst mains) then that might be regarded as an emergency. Even in that case, you should attempt to make contact by telephone, text or maybe email before entering.
