Burst or leaking pipes in Sydney can certainly cause a huge amount of damage throughout your home. While not always visible to the naked eye, since most pipes are hidden from view, they do leave some tell-tale signs. The list below is not exhaustive, but if you notice any of these signs, you may have a leaking or burst pipe.

  • Walls appearing warped or stained
  • The appearance of mould on surfaces
  • Your water has a bad odour, or is discoloured
  • Water pooling outside the home
  • Your taps won’t stop dripping

If you notice any of these symptoms, we recommend giving us a call immediately. Leaking pipes may only cause a small problem now, but can be a disaster if left untreated.

Assessment and leak detection

There are a number of causes for leaking pipes in Sydney, but many of them are out of your control. Sometimes, you may not even know there’s an issue, because leaking pipes don’t always occur in visible places. Some of the causes of leaks are as follows:

Tree roots: Even the smallest crack in a pipe can let tree roots inside, where they can grow causing blockages and more damage.

Water pressure too high: If your water pressure is too high, it can damage the pipes.

Corrosion and rust: Older pipes are susceptible to rust and corrosion. Ultimately this causes pipes to leak and break.

Change in temperature: Rapid changes of temperature can affect the stability of the pipe, causing it to crack.

Incorrect installation: Poorly installed pipes often experience problems.

We use cutting edge technology to pinpoint the source of any leakages, which then allows us to deliver the right solution. Our experts are trained in leak detection, and of course repairing or replacing the problem pipes accordingly.
