Burst Pipes and Leak Detection
Has there been a large increase in your bill for water usage? Do you think it is excessive or does it seem expensive?
Every day we come across this common problem, usually because a pipe has split or burst which causes the loss of a large quantity of water. In this drying climate any water loss is significant and Zambezi Plumbing always act quickly and efficiently to protect this precious resource.
Ways to Identify a burst or leaking pipe
Look for the following:
- Your water bill has increased dramatically.
- Water pooling outside that does not appear to drain away
- Wall feeling damp or paint bubbling or mould patches
- Mouldy smell or damp smell in a particular area of the premises
If you have a burst pipe, need leak detection or have any of these call the team at Zambezi Plumbing. We have all access to the latest advanced digital leak detection equipment which locates the tiniest pin hole leaks quickly. Leak detection identifies the exact location of the leak to enable a quick repair. We have all the resources required to safely repair leaking sections on the spot or if necessary the entire line. If the line needs to be replaced, we will explain and show you why we recommend the course of action to be taken. Pipes undergo Corrosion, a reaction with the copper pipe and chemicals in the soil causing pin holes or cracks. There are many forms of corrosion, but pitting corrosion is most likely to culminate in pinhole leaks in copper plumbing.
Our aim is to attend site to ascertain the location of the burst pipe or leak and fix it straight away, so we prevent any further water loss. Once the leak has been stopped and repaired our technicians will assist in completing a leak allowance form. This form is to make a claim to the Water Corporation for a rebate on the excessive water use that has occurred.
Here is the link directly to the leak form which also has all the important information about making a claim.
