Burst Water Pipe Repair or Replacement

Burst Water Pipes

When we think of something bursting, we tend to think of balloons, car tires, an erupting volcano…in other words, something spectacular with real shock value that can be seen, felt and heard.

Burst water pipes aren’t always like that and, in fact, more often than not will occur out of sight, such as beneath floors or underground. Water pipes also can burst when you’re sleeping, at work, on holidays, or away from home for any other reason.

Where Burst Water Pipes Can Occur

There are numerous potential consequences stemming from a burst pipe, including a “sound,” an increase in your water bill, loss of water pressure, or reduced hot water temperature. Burst pipes also can lead to outdoor or indoor damp patches…even a major flood in the kitchen or bathroom.

Here are more potential burst pipe Burst Pipe And Repairscenarios presented on the proposition that “forewarned is forearmed”:


As the first steps in correcting the problem, Kalamunda Plumbing will determine “which” and then “where” the burst or leak has occurred.


A burst or leaking pipe can occur under floors or inside walls, under baths or inside vanity cabinets, in ceiling spaces or between floors.


And then there’s under brick paving and/or under concrete paths and driveways (or asphalt).


Identifying a Burst Water Pipe

Burst pipes not only cause hundreds, even thousands of dollars of property damage, they can also result in enormous amounts of wasted water. Minor but persistent leaks also can occur that barely register on the water meter. For example, a persistently dripping tap will barely register on a water meter but, left unattended, it could leak almost 10,000 litres of water per year. If you have a dripping tap and a leaky toilet cistern, they can waste enough water (per year) to fill a small swimming pool.

How Do We Locate a Burst Pipe?

  • First of all we check the water meter to determine whether there is a loss of water.
  • Then we determine whether the leak is in the hot or cold pipework.
  • Wherever possible, we’ll determine the type of pipe, such as copper, poly, or PVC, so as to decide what equipment to use.
  • And finally we determine the best way forward including the most appropriate equipment to track the pipe and pin-point the leak.

How Do We Repair a Burst Pipe?

  • Firstly, we advise the most appropriate option for repair or replacement. Eg: Repair in situ, replacement of pipe, or redirecting / rerouting the pipe such as around a tree, or repairing the pipe from the other side of the wall, so to avoid removal of a bath, or to minimise damage to tiles or cabinets.
  • We also determine whether excess water pressure has played a part by checking water pressure into the property and advising appropriate measures.
  • We advise all occupants in regards to turning the water off.
  • We barricade work areas where appropriate, to keep occupants and workers safe.
  • Once the burst pipe is repaired, we will endeavour to return the site to its original state, including organizing the likes of a plasterer, or tiler, painter, etc.
