Emergency Burst Pipe Repairs and Leaking Water Pipes Fixed Quickly By Professional Plumbers in Umina Beach

Do you have a pipe that drips?
Are your pipes always wet?
Is your water pressure low?
Have you been ignoring the problem for too long already?

Leaking pipes or burst pipes are common plumbing problems. While burst pipes are an emergency plumbing situation that needs immediate attention most homeowners ignore leaking pipes for long periods of time.
Irrespective of how small the leak is, constantly leaking water pipes cannot only waste several gallons of water every year and surprise you with huge water bills but also silently cause damage to your building or property in the long run.

Leaking Pipe Detection

However, most of the time leaking pipes are hidden behind the walls and pinpointing their exact location is not a simple job. The only hint you have are those mysterious small wet patches on your walls or your ceiling.

Main Causes of Burst Water Pipes

There are a few main common causes of burst water pipes and we have listed them in roughly the most common order. This can help with prevention of any more water leaks and potential damage and inconvenience:

  • Corroded Pipes - Old copper pipes (or other metal) will eventually corrode from the inside and out over time. If they are unprotected this will happen quicker. Old pipes will also slowly corrode from the inside and get thinner as the rust builds up until they finally burst at the weakest point due to the increased water pressure
  • High Water Pressure - Water pipes operate under pressure, which is why proper installation to current standards is crucial. Excess pressure (for multiple reasons) will put undue strain on your pipes and you’ll often hear knocking or banging when you turn taps on or off (this is known as “water hammer”) which is often a sign of high pressure
  • Blockages - Blocked and clogged pipes will cause a number of issues, but a blockage will cause a localised build-up of pressure that can damage or weaken your pipes causing leaks at the joins or cracks
  • Tree Root Growth - This a common reason for broken pipes Over time tree roots can break into and block or collapse even the largest of water and sewage pipes. Also, nearby excavation or other forces like more surface weight will add too much pressure can also cause pipes to burst
  • Freezing - Whilst there is not so much of this in the Umina Beach area, it can happen. Unprotected (no lagging) pipes are prone as the water in your pipe freezes it will then expand and can burst your pipe
  • Bad Installation or Poor Quality - Incorrectly installed or badly designed plumbing systems are also common. Unqualified and unscrupulous plumbers will sometimes install pipes that will work initially but fail later to save time and money

What are the most water pipe problems?

- Leaking pipes
- Cracked pipes
- Leaking or faulty seals
- No backflow prevention valves fitted
- Frozen pipes
- Water hammer (loud knocking when turning off taps)
- Corroded or worn pipes
- Reduced water pressure (due to small pipes or blockages)

Is a leaking pipe an emergency?

It definitely can be. Even if it’s just dripping slowly, water pipes that carry water to taps or heaters are under pressure so the leak could just suddenly get a lot worse causing lots of water damage. Waste water pipe leaks are obviously hazardous. All leaking pipe issues should be dealt with asap ideally

Why do pipes leak?

Pipes can leak or fail due to a huge number of reasons (see above), but usually, it’s age-related. Fear not, as experienced plumbers we can fix every leaking pipe problem you may have efficiently and effectively

Is fixing a leaking pipe expensive?

Usually not, if it’s a simple repair then no, but if we have to replace a section of pipe then this will be more costly as will hard-to-access pipes but we will advise fully on pricing with you before carrying out any work

Do i need to change all my pipes if I have a problem?

No not usually. However if when we inspect the pipes and think that a repair will only be temporary and that the best solution is a large-scale replacement then we will advise on this at the time. Usually, this isn’t common unless pipes are extremely old and decayed
