Not sure if you have a leak?
The slower, sneakier leaks can go unnoticed for weeks, or even months – until a massive water bill arrives!
The best way to check if you have a slow leak is to first turn all of your taps off. If your water meter continues to tick over, call Plumbdog immediately.
While all our plumbers do carry basic leak detection equipment such as a pressure gauge and heat gun, we often recommend that if the leak is not visible it may be best that we organise a Plumbdog leak detection specialist for you. Our specialised guys carry all of the latest and most advanced water leak detection equipment in their service vehicles in order to locate and repair your burst pipes all in one visit in most instances.

Why do I keep getting burst pipes?
Copper pipes are the most commonly affected by bursts, and often on the hot pipes rather than the cold. These copper pipes can be found buried in sand around the boundary of the house, with the heat in the pipes reacting with acid present in the sand. This reaction makes the copper pipes brittle, causing them to split and in need of repair or replacement. These days more plastic or chemically lagged pipes are being used in the ground to help prevent this.
Common sources of household water leaks
Water leaks can be some of the toughest plumbing issues in the home. There are, however, some basic checks you can do to locate some of the more common leaks, such as:
Toilet: You can check your toilet for leaks by removing the cover from the cistern and listening closely. A leak is often accompanied by a low hissing sound, and a small amount of water leaking down the back of the bowl.
Shower: As they accumulate water, shower heads can conceal evidence of a leak until they overflow. Move or remove the head to check.
Outdoor taps: A leaking garden tap can sometimes be given away by the presence of unusually green grass or foliage around it, especially if the weather has been dry. Also make sure you check hoses and drip irrigation systems.
If you continue to be affected by a burst pipe, it may be worth obtaining a quote to replace your pipes, especially if they are in poor condition. We can replace corroded copper pipes with plastic pipes or chemically lagged copper.
