Think you've got an issue?
Burst pipes are often very hard to detect, as they are usually underground or within the walls of your home. If your water bill is unexpectedly high, there is a damp patch on a wall or you find the water pressure in your home is suddenly lighter than normal, you may have a burst pipe or water leak.
Common causes of burst pipes and water leaks:
- Old pipes that have corroded, causing water to seep from walls or floors
- Tree roots that have strangled and cracked a pipe, causing puddles to appear on your lawn or driveway
- Renovation accidents, where someone cuts or drills through the water pipe, causing flooding
- Poor or incorrect plumbing installation or installation with the wrong materials causing failures
- Blocked drains and pipes, resulting in water pressure build-up and eventually leaks or burst pipes.
