We Fix Burst Pipes!

Burst water pipes can cause a lot of damage in homes and on properties. Lucid Plumbing is here to take care of all your home’s plumbing needs. Water supply pipes are designed to withstand a large amount of pressure, but many factors can cause a water pipe to burst.

Lucid Plumbing has offices throughout Australia. We are waiting for your call and will help you to assess and restore your home's plumbing to peak working order.

What Causes A Burst Pipe?

Globally, many pipes burst in winter due to the expansion and contraction of frozen water. This affects the integrity of the pipe. Water pipes do have a limited lifespan as the materials used corrode over time.

Water pipes and the flow of water create pressure. When you turn on a tap – water runs. Without water pressure, water can not flow. If enough pressure builds up inside a pipe it can burst, especially at a joint.

  • Incorrect pipework, layering of pipes, and poor re-enforcement of joints can cause pipes to burst
  • Ground movement and weight can add too much pressure to a pipe (Earthquakes, heavy rains)
  • Excessive water pressure (This can be caused by incorrect size pipes and fittings)
  • Clogged Pipes – a buildup of materials stops the correct flow of water
  • This creates too much pressure in the pipe, and it can burst
  • Aged pipes may have lost their structural integrity
  • Metal pipes can rust and corrode, and plastic pipes can become brittle

What Do I Do?

You need to turn off the main water supply. It should be located near your meter – near your home or on your property. Get help if you can not turn it off. It is important to shut off the supply of water. Call professional plumbers right away.

Signs That There is a Burst Water Pipe

If there is a burst pipe in an area where you can see it, while this is a problem, at least you can locate it easily. This is not always the case. There are some warning signs to look out for:

  • Is your water bill skyrocketing?
  • Is the water pressure unstable?
  • Is the water cloudy, or does it have a brown tint? (Burst pipes can breed bacteria or contain rust)
  • Is there a rotten egg smell? Leaking sewage from a burst pipe will give off natural gas
  • Do you hear hissing in the taps, or gurgling in the drains?
  • Do you have noisy pipes?

All these signs show that there is a problem with the plumbing system of your home. A burst pipe will affect the water pressure of your home and needs immediate attention.

Check the Meter

If you suspect that there may be a bust pipe you can also check the meter. Turn off your taps and plumbed in appliances (Dishwasher, washing machine). Locate the water meter on your property and see if it is running. If the dials are spinning, it indicates that water is flowing through the system.

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.
