Over the decades, we’ve fielded countless calls from clients who cannot determine why they have so many recurring plumbing issues. No matter how many times they upgrade faucets, replace filters or repair underskin pipes, their water comes out slow, tepid and sour. Why?
If you’re struggling with recurring plumbing issues, you might be trying to relieve the symptoms without addressing the cause. In our experience, the problem is most likely to be water pipe corrosion.
If we’re right about the corrosion, you’ll need your water pipes renewed. That means they’ll either need to be repaired, fortified, or replaced entirely. Inner City Plumbing’s expert plumbers specialise in renewing water pipes efficiently, cost-effectively and with minimal disruption to your site. Signs of water pipe corrosion include:
When clients hear ‘comprehensive solutions, ’ their hands instinctively move to protect their wallets. Take this from an expert: what you save now, you’ll pay for later.

As a full-service plumber, Inner City Plumbing has become the go-to pipe renewal specialist for Melbourne councils, homeowners, builders and site managers.

Water main corrosion is common in Melbourne, particularly inner city suburbs such as South Yarra, Richmond, Collingwood and Abbotsford
Corroded pipes often spring a leak and require replacement
Burst pipes underground can find their way to the surface. Our plumbers will safely isolate the water main to make repairs, we are equipped to remove flooring to find the burst pipe location and repair it.

Those principles have kept us going strong for thirty years. But as a family-owned enterprise, enjoying the work is arguably the most important point on that list; getting to work and grow with our loved ones motivates us to be the best plumbers we can be and provide the quality of service you deserve.
Older plumbing systems used galvanised steel pipes. That metal is extremely tough and long lasting, so there’s good reason to use it to manufacture underground water pipes. But it isn’t impervious; when it’s damaged, it will begin to rust.
Today, water pipes are typically made from copper or plastic. When conducting water pipe renewals, we will replace damaged, corroded or steel pipes with copper or PVC ones.
The longer you wait to renew your water pipes, the worse the problem will get. Here are our details — give us a ring as soon as you notice a plumbing problem.
