Broken fire mains are the tragedy before the tragedy

When a fire breaks out, emergency fire services need to be able to act decisively and effectively to protect lives. You simply cannot allow a situation where firefighters reach your site only to realise, in the moment, that their water access is compromised. If that’s the case, their fight was over before it began.

Some fire mains and hydrants erode over time, others are damaged during foul weather, hit by cars, or burst during water pressure spikes. Whatever the cause, we’re the solution.

As a site manager or council administrator, it is your responsibility to ensure that all fire mains under your purview are regularly maintained and fixed immediately after being damaged. It’s a heavy responsibility. But leave it with our qualified plumbers, and we’ll ensure your fire mains are always ready to go.

We repair all fire main components, including:

What our customers say

Cameron MiltonCameron Milton ★★★★★ Inner City Plumbing were fantastic, everything from booking in the appointment, to the plumbers Jack and Lauchlan turning up on time, giving advice, and honestly working hard, would call them again any day of the week if I or when I need another plumbing problem resolved. I highly recommend themTsets GibbonsTsets Gibbons ★★★★★ David BruceDavid Bruce ★★★★★ Quick, efficient and friendly and most importantly did an excellent job.Nathan ChaniagoNathan Chaniago ★★★★★ Just got off the phone with Inner City Plumbing, where they saved me a few grand. Was looking to get drain grates installed on my roof. I had a previous plumber quote me a suspicious price, so I wanted a second opinion. Called up Inner City where I was redirected to Sam. After some back and forth, he explained that it was something I could easily do myself for a fraction of the cost. They could've easily charged for a visit, but instead just gave me honest and practical advice.Sean SextonSean Sexton ★★★★★ I couldn’t say enough good things about Shane, and Inner City Plumbing. Bang on time, fixed what needed to be fixed and saved me from botching replacing the shower head myself. Chilled, happy to answer questions, his ultra positive early morning vibes got the bathroom back to 100% in next to no time. Thanks so much. Cheers. Sean.Aaron MorrisonAaron Morrison ★★★★★ Inner City Plumbing were absolutely outstanding!! We needed emergency plumbing after the sewer surged back into our wet areas and flooded the floor.
