Services we offer for burst or leaking pipes

Pipe location & leak detection

We use specialist acoustic & digital technology to pinpoint the source of any water leaks to provide the best and most cost-effective course of action to fix it.

Re-running new pipe

If there is significant obstacles such as trees, driveways, buildings etc. we can divert new pipe around the obstacle which has caused the burst.

Replacing existing pipe

If we locate the leak in an accessible area, the most cost-effective solution is to simply remove the damaged section and replace it with new piping.

Flexi hose connection replacements

Often it is not actually the pipe which bursts, rather the flexi-hose connector which connects the pipe to taps and toilets. In this case we simply replace the whole flexi-hose connector, which is an easy task.

Water pressure test

To ensure the longevity of your pipework and tapware, we can provide water pressure tests to make sure it does not exceed manufacturers specifications. This ensures your warranty is not void and you are covered by insurance.

Other plumbing solutions

If the burst pipe is related to another plumbing issue we find during the inspection, we can provide the appropriate actions to prevent more damage and ensure the issue does not keep occurring.

What causes water pipes to burst?

There are many factors which cause Australian water pipes to become damaged over time and burst. Below are the most common.

  • Expansion/contraction of concrete around pipes, especially from extreme temperature changes, causes abrasion which can crack and weaken the pipe.
  • Poly pipes that have moved in the ground due to tree roots and land movement.
  • High water pressure combined with general wear and tear causing degradation.
  • Poor installation during the construction of the building.
  • Botched DIY home jobs where the pipe has been penetrated by drilling in the wrong spot.
