Common causes of burst water pipes & water leak

It can be very difficult to predict a water pipe in your home bursting, as most are hidden within the walls of your home or originate from underground. Some common clues may be damp patches on your wall or in your garden, a constantly running water meter, reduced water pressure or high water bills. Common causes include;

  • Accidents that can occur from renovations or home repairs where someone has damaged a water pipe, this may not leak water straight away but can result in flooding down the track
  • Incorrect installation of water pipes that may not leak in the interim but burst when ideal conditions occur i.e. pressure increases in the water mains at night when demand is low
  • Tree roots can push against water pipes causing cracks to appear, puddles may start appearing on your property or you may notice water running into the street from your storm water pipes.
  • Old water pipes that have corroded over time causing water to flow from floors or walls
