Burst Sink Tap

Whether your sink, shower, or washing machine is leaking, it’s never a fun time to discover a burst pipe. Not only does a burst sink tap leave a mess, but it can also jeopardise your entire plumbing system if you don’t do something about it right away.

On top of that, it’s a huge waste of water. One burst tap can leak gallons of water per day, so you must call an expert as soon as possible.

Dealing with these kinds of plumbing issues can cause a great deal of stress for you and your family, so we’re here to help. Lucid Plumbing has years of experience handling burst sink taps and several other plumbing issues, helping Australian families live a comfortable lifestyle all year round.

What Causes a Burst Sink Tap?

It’s easy to tell there’s something wrong with your pipes if you’re knee-deep in water standing in your kitchen or bathroom. But what causes the sink tap to burst in the first place? Several culprits are usually to blame, and you must identify the cause to find a viable solution.

Here are some of the primary causes of a burst sink tap:

Old/Weak Pipes

If you’re living in an older home, chances are you’ll have a plumbing issue sooner or later. Pipes that are covered with corrosion are easier to damage, therefore, they are more likely to burst. What’s more, outdated plumbing systems aren’t always capable of keeping up with the demands of a modern household. Eventually, the increased water pressure will burst the pipe.

Increased Water Pressure

Water pressure is often the primary suspect for a burst pipe. High water pressure can cause a lot of stress on your pipes, leading to damages. If you hear loud bangs coming from your pipes, chances are the water pressure is too high. In that case, you may need to reach out to your water supplier to reduce the pressure.

Poor Installation

If you or whoever lived in your home before you were unlucky enough to work with an inexperienced plumber, you can expect a vast array of plumbing issues to arise. Poor pipe installation can cause them to burst under any condition. As a result, you should always work with a reputable contractor for all plumbing jobs.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
