Burst Pipe Melbourne- Finding the Source of the Leak

Posted by on October 3, 2017
Burst pipe Melbourne can be extremely difficult to locate and it is advisable that a plumber Melbourne who is experienced in detecting leaks be contacted if you have water leaking from an unknown source.

Burst Pipe Melbourne Can be Caused by Expansion of Copper Piping

When copper pipes are laid in concrete without the correct lagging or covering over them properly, the pipes can sometimes split. This is due to the Copper which is a material that expands and contracts when heated. On a hot day pipes that are run in concrete can split, as the pipe has no room to move when the copper naturally tries to expand.

There are companies that specialize in locating leaks in pipes that are not visible, but they should be used in conjunction with a plumber Melbourne who is experienced in repairing burst pipes. Many pipe locators are not necessary licensed plumbers and will find but not be able to repair any leaks. It is important that the plumber Melbourne who is going to repair the leak is present when the pipe locating company is performing their work. Finding the leak is the first part of the job and repairing or re-running the pipes is a job for a qualified plumber Melbourne. If a complete inspection of the pipes in the problem area is not done properly and correctly there could be a possibility that a relaying of the piping will be required. This will result in further costs and having the water supply to your home or business being disconnected for a period of time.

Burst Pipe Melbourne and Finding the right Plumber Melbourne

Some plumbers Melbourne may have the equipment to trace copper pipes. However, if they are not using the equipment on a regular basis, it is advisable to use a company that specialises in this type of work. They will be able to solve the issue much faster and will therefore save you money in the process.

If you have a leaking pipe Melbourne, ask the plumber Melbourne these questions:

  1. Are you experienced in tracing leaks?
  2. Have you got the correct pressure testing equipment?
  3. Do you have pipe-locating equipment or use a specialised leak detection company?

Most Newly Constructed Homes Do Not Use Copper Pipes for Their Water Supply

This makes locating the pipes and source of the leak much more difficult. The newer pipes can be plastic polybutylene and cannot be traced as easily as copper pipes.

The plastic hot pipe can be traced using an infrared tool. When the pipe becomes hot by running the hot water through it the infrared testing instrument will show up the leak on the pipe monitor. To find a leak in plastic cold water pipes, you need to connect it to the hot water system. Once hot water is running through the pipe, the leak will show up on the infrared monitor.
