Burst Water Pipes

Burst Water Pipes

If you are experiencing any of the following in your residential or commercial property Precision Plumbing & Drainage NT can come and inspect.

 

  • Loss of water pressure
  • Unusual noises coming from the water system
  • Peeling paint
  • Wet, spongy lawn, despite no rain
  • Lifting tiles
  • Damp patches on ceilings, walls or floors
  • Discoloured water
  • Mould formation

 

The above issues may be a result from the following;

 

Movement / Water Hammer

If water pipes aren’t secured, they can sometimes move around inside the walls whenever water is suddenly turned on or off. If you’ve ever heard pipes clanging inside walls or floors, it’s called water hammer.

 

Water Pressure Issues

Maintaining normal water pressure is vital for your water supply pipes to function properly. A significant increase in the water pressure can lead to a burst pipe or a failed plumbing fixture such as a faucet or toilet.

 

Corrosion

Copper plumbing supply lines can pick up corrosion from rusty water heater deposits, water left standing too long in the pipes or from excess flux left inside the pipe.
