A burst pipe may not be obvious, but it can have huge and costly consequences. It is important to take extra precaution if you suspect something is wrong.

One of our fully accredited and experienced plumbers will be at your door promptly to resolve the issue.
Some Reasons That Pipes Can Burst:
- Moving Pipework- this could be because the pipework is not secured properly in the wall cavities which will cause it to move around, as the water is turned on and off it will eventually cause a weakness at the joints and then the pressurized water needs to escape.
- Age- Metal pipes have a tendency overtime to corrode, the walls weaken and break down due to the water pressure to prevent this most new homes are now built with Copper or Poly pipework that are resistant to rust.
- Water pressure- too much pressure can result in the pipework to fail. One of our licenced plumbers can come to site and pressure test your water pipework and if the pressure is too high, we can install a pressure reducing valve at your water meter. You also need to regularly check the flexible water connections for your tap-ware and toilets if they show any signs of stress or expansion they must be changed.
- Damage- if your trying to hang the dreaded photo frame/print you could accidentally drill through a water pipe in the wall. Even Landscaping or maintaining your front & back yard you could accidentally hit your main water line feeding the house or even the pipework for your front hose tap
