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.

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:
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.
