Whether it’s a burst water pipe inside your home or an underground water pipe, we can be on-site same day, to have the pipe located and repaired immediately to minimise any potential flood damage.

Whywait Plumbing is expert in burst pipe repairs, leaking and broken pipe repairs, and can handle every aspect of the job professionally, from repairing or replacing a burst pipe, to remove debris and worksite clean up.

Burst Flexi Hose 

A burst flexi hose is now an everyday occurrence. This is due to the amount of plastic piping now installed in homes instead of copper pipe.

A burst flexi hose is all too common. An average house now has multiple flexi hoses installed under the kitchen sink, under the bathroom vanity basins, under the toilet cistern and the laundry tub. The reality is that every flexi hose connected is potentially a ticking time bomb.

You need to turn your water off quickly when you experience a burst flexi hose at your water meter once the water is turned off call us immediately as this is a plumbing emergency.

A burst flexi hose is not a DIY repair and needs to be done compliantly by a licensed plumber who will ensure that the pipe is repaired with approved WaterMark products in accordance with the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018.

Leaking Internal Water Pipes

A leaking water pipe in your wall or concrete floor slab is when you need to call Whywait’s experienced plumbers now, as we know they can be challenging to locate. Unless you can physically and visually see the pipe with the water leaking from it, we can guarantee that it will be challenging.

A leaking water pipe is hard to see and even more difficult to locate because a water pipe is almost always concealed. It will be either underground or under the concrete slab floor or in the wall cavity or the ceiling.

Confused, puzzled, frustrated are all excellent descriptions of what you will experience with a suspected water pipe leak. That’s because water leaking to the surface inside your home is seldom where the actual leaking pipe is located. Water will travel a long way, taking the most straightforward route before it comes bubbling to the surface.

Leaking Underground Water Main

A leaking water pipe in the water main buried in the ground is the most common burst pipe repairs undertaken by Whywait Plumbing. The water main pipe is the pipe connected to the water meter that then runs around the property into your home or business premises.

The water main pipe is 99% of the time completely concealed underground. Often you don’t realise you have a leak until you receive a bill from the City of Gold Coast telling you that you owe them thousands of dollars.

The property owner is very simply responsible for all water pipes, including all underground water main pipes after the council meter. As far as the law is concerned, it is your responsibility as the property owner to check if you have a leaking water pipe and organise a licensed plumber to carry out all repairs.

Fortunately, modern leak detection techniques have made it much easier for us to locate the leak and undertake burst pipe repairs.

How To Check If You Have A Leaking Water Pipe

Several signs may be already indicating a leaking water pipe inside your home or in your gardens and lawns that you maybe can hear or visually see such as:

  • a green patch in the lawn that is luxurious green grass compared to the rest of your lawn
  • water always running into the street from your stormwater pipe
  • wet areas in your lawn or garden that are never dry
  • a luxurious growth of plants in a single area of the garden
  • damp patches or mould growth always visible on a wall, ceiling or floor
  • water stains that never dry on woodwork or plaster areas
  • cracks in tile areas, concrete paths or on brick walls
  • warping and expansion of cabinets in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry
  • a constant musty or damp smell in a room
  • bubbling in the paint on the walls or ceiling
  • hissing sounds that are constant inside a room

How To Check For A Leaking Water Pipe

A simple DIY check of your home and outside lawn and garden areas every month can save you the heartache of a massive water bill and damage to your precious possessions by undertaking the following:

  • Check for visible leaks from the list above.
  • Check if any family member has heard a hissing sound in any house area, especially when using the toilet.
  • Turn off all taps in the house, including the dishwasher and washing machine but not the toilet cisterns and don’t flush the toilet for 1 hour.
  • Check the water meter reading once every tap is off and write down the reading. If you are not sure how to do this read our instructions on How To Read Your Water Meter or watch the video below
  • After 1 hour check the water meter reading again because if the dials have moved then in all likelihood, you have a leaking water pipe.

“Earlier this week I woke to find the main water pipe that supplies water to the house had burst underground and I had to shut the water supply off. I called Whywait Plumbing Services at 7:30am and they arrived around 30 minutes later and got straight into fixing it. I was quoted upfront so I knew what the cost would be but was pleasantly surprised when the invoice was a bit less as the job took less time then expected. I highly recommend Whywait Plumbing Services and will definitely use them again, they were professional and courteous.”
