service

We won’t forget our manners just because we’re in a rush. Expect punctuality and respect as well as expertise.

Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best.

It’s so easy to think of a burst water pipe as a gushing torrent of water flooding a room. There’s actually a silver lining to that — at least we’ll know where the flood is. The truth is that most burst pipes occur in areas that are hard to see or access, like under your house or garden, or within a wall.

There’s nothing you can do to stop an accident. It’s in their nature to sneak around even the best-laid plans. All you can do is prepare for what happens after. As full-service plumbers, we have the experience and technological expertise to quickly locate and stop leaking pipes.

Inner City Plumbing’s veteran plumbers have conducted burst pipe repairs at suburban homes, city apartments, inner-city businesses and outer-suburb factories. No matter how complex or far-reaching your plumbing system, our level-headed experts will know just what to do.

We cut costs, not corners

We use the best detection technology and repair tools in all burst pipe repairs. We insist on it. At first, you’ll be glad you’ve got a professional on your side. But then that little voice at the back of your head will ask, “Is there a cheaper way to do it?”

Our advice: an expensive solution is far more cost-effective than a cheap one. Cut costs today, and you’ll pay the price tomorrow.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got a burst pipe hidden somewhere on your property, but you can’t see any leaks or puddles, then look for these other signs:

  • Your water bill will inexplicably increase
  • Your site has constant issues with mould and wood rot
  • Your hot water system is consistently low on water pressure
  • The water coming from your pipes has foul odours and odd colours
  • New cracks appear in the floors and walls of your home

You can also check your water meter if you suspect a leak or burst pipe. Take note of its reading, avoid using water for an hour, and recheck the reading. If you have a leak, your water meter will give you a higher reading.

Many homes and units built in the last 15 years do not have copper pipes for hot and cold water supply. Instead of copper, modern pipes are made of plastic polybutylene, making them harder to locate.

We use infrared imaging to trace the heat of the hot water running through the pipes. As the pipe itself heats up, we can map its path through your home and locate the leaks.
