If you have dealt with burst pipes or leaking pipes lately, you are not alone. Thousands of Australian homes are dealing with the same problem.

Whatever the cause, it is important to get the problem fixed as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

Why Are My Pipes Bursting Leaking?

There are a few reasons your pipes could be bursting or leaking. They include:

Frozen Pipes

The Australian winter can get pretty chilly, and if your pipes aren’t properly insulated, they could freeze over. This causes the water inside to expand, putting pressure on the pipe and causing it to burst.

Leaking Joints

If the joints in your pipes are old or damaged, they could start to leak. This is especially a problem if the pipes are made of metal, as the joints can corrode over time.

Tree Roots

If you have trees in your yard, their roots could be growing into your pipes and causing them to leak or burst. This is more of a problem in older homes with clay pipes, as the roots can easily break through them.

Temperature Changes

If the temperature outside changes suddenly, it can cause your pipes to expand or contract, which can lead to leaks.

So, if you’re having problems with your pipes bursting or leaking, it could be due to one of these four things. Some leaks are hard to see, but here are a few signs you should look out for:

  • Mold or mildew growth: If you start to see mould or mildew growing around your pipes, it could be a sign of a leak. This is because mould needs moisture to grow, so if there’s mould, there’s probably a leak.
  • Water stains: If you see water stains on your walls or ceilings, it could be a sign that your pipes are leaking.
  • Puddles: If you start seeing puddles forming around your home, it’s definitely a sign of a leak.
  • Sound of running water: If you hear the sound of running water when all your taps are turned off, it means there’s a leak somewhere.

Regardless of how hidden your leaks are, we use an array of leak detection techniques to accurately find the source of your leak. Once we’ve found the leak, our team of experienced plumbers will repair or replace the pipe to fix the problem.

Common Problems With Bursting And Leaking Pipes

There are many problems that come with bursting and leaking pipes. They include:

#1 A bursting pipe will spray water on everything within the vicinity.

When a pipe bursts, the water that is contained within it will spray out with a lot of force. This could ruin any electronics or furniture that are nearby.

If the burst pipe is in your walls or ceiling, the water could also damage your insulation and cause mould to grow.

#2 A leaking and bursting pipe will cost you more water expenses.

Water spilling from a burst or leaky pipe is not only wasted water, it also means that you’ll have to pay more for your water bill.

A single leak can waste thousands of litres of water per month, so imagine the cost of having multiple leaks!

Not only will you have to pay for the water, but you’ll also have to pay to have the leaks repaired.

#3 A leaking pipe will continuously spread water below it.

Water from a leak will spread outwards, damaging anything in its path. This could include your floors, walls, and even the foundation of your home.

The longer the leak goes unrepaired, the more damage it will cause. Also, if the leak is in a hidden area, such as behind your walls, the damage could be extensive by the time you notice it.
