Water damage to your property can be significant and cause you thousands of dollars of damage, in a very short amount of time. Our team at Gold Plumbing have experienced it all, and can have someone at your property within the hour to ensure your burst pipe is fixed properly.
Brittleness in the pipe or fittings – typically caused by extreme temperatures causing the pipe to expand and contract over many years.
Old age – pipes and fitting don’t last forever and deteriorate over time.
Unprotected pipes – undergrounds pipes may have been backfilled with sharp rocks or debris which eventually pierces the pipe.
Old fixtures – old taps, mixers, flexi hoses deteriorate over time or from use and can burst.
Tree roots – tree roots may interfere with your water pipes by growing around or under the pipe causing them to break.
There may be some signs or factors that a pipe or fitting could potentially burst. This could be seeing wet patches, marks or dampness in the ceiling or wall, or muddy patches (or muddy ground) in the backyard. Taps looking corroded or hard to turn off and on. If that’s the case, it’s best to call us sooner rather than later to get it fixed.
