Do you have a burst pipe?


In most situations, if you have a burst pipe — you’ll know.

This could mean soaking wet carpet, water damaged walls, and even flooding within your home. What started off as a small leak, could lead to a complete burst.

However, there are also times when a burst pipe is more subtle. Here are some signs to look out for:

Change in water pressure

If your pipes have burst, there will be less water moving due to a decrease in pressure and the leakage occurring. This could be evident when showering, washing your hands, and flushing your toilet.

Water stains

If the burst pipe isn’t that serious yet, there may be only trace amounts of water coming out. However, this could leave watermarks on your walls, floors, and anywhere else where pipes run under.

Expensive water bills

If your water bill is significantly more expensive than before and your water meter shows a higher number than usual — there’s a good chance you have a burst pipe.

Causes of burst pipes

In Australia, it is very uncommon for a pipe to burst due to water becoming frozen (although it can happen).

The most common causes are instead:

  • Poorly secured pipes. With the extremely high pressure that water pipes contain, if it is not properly fixed in a stable position, it can bump against other surfaces and cause it to burst. Before this happens, you’ll hear loud noises whenever water is being used.
  • Faulty pressure valves. When your water system’s pressure valves aren’t working correctly, there can be a build-up of pressure in your pipe and can cause your pipe to burst.

Melbourne Burst Pipe Repairs


Our plumbers are experts at repairing burst pipes. We have been helping residential and commercial property owners across Melbourne with all their plumbing needs.

If your burst pipe is severe, we can also provide you with temporary solutions to minimise damage. For example, we can use C-clamps to stop small leaks or wrap your burst pipe in a rubber insulated sleeve clamp. Both of these are easy ways to temporarily stop a leak until we can repair it completely.

To fix your burst pipe, we will cut out any damaged areas and replace it with a new piece of pipe. We’ll ensure this is flush with the existing pipe and that any existing corrosion is cleaned off to prevent damage to the new pipe. This will then be soldered on to ensure a tight fit with zero leakage.

If you do have a burst pipe, ensure you:

  • Turn off your water to minimise water leakage and further damage
  • Turn on the water in your sinks to decrease the amount of water in your pipes
  • Remove any water from your premise to minimise water damage
  • Contact us ASAP. We offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services which are ideal for burst pipes
