Burst Pipes Melbourne
Water pressure is one of the most pressing issues when it comes to burst pipes. Did you know that according to the Victorian Building Authority, a dwelling requires a pressure reduction valve to be fitted to the water metre when the water pressure exceeds 500kpa? The team at Sven’s Plumbing & Gas will always complete a complimentary pressure check prior to commencing works at your property. Our service vehicles are fully stocked to repair just about any brand of burst pipe including Sharkbite, Rehau, Auspex and more.
When we repair a burst pipe, we cut out the entire section and replace it with new joiners and pipework ensuring there are no nearby stress fractures that could later cause another burst pipe. We will check the water pressure and if required, we will install a pressure reduction valve at the water metre to prevent further damage to your property’s pipe and fixtures. When we conduct a pipe repair we carefully flush the water lines to ensure that no dirt or sediment can enter your toilet inlet valves or tapware. If your pipe work is old, we can install a pipe clamp in an emergency until a section can be replaced in copper pipe. For all your burst pipe needs, you are in safe hands with Sven’s Plumbing & Gas.
