Not sure if you have a pipe leak?

A slow-leaking water pipe can be pretty sneaky and go unnoticed for weeks, or even months – eventually culminating in a massive water bill. How can one avoid this? The best way to check if you have a slow leak is to turn all of your taps off. If your water meter continues to tick over, call Plumbdog immediately.

While all our plumbers carry basic leak detection equipment such as a pressure gauge and heat gun, some leaks are invisible. In such a case, we recommend that you request a Plumbdog leak detection specialist to inspect the problem and give the best advice going forward. Our specialists carry all of the latest and most advanced water leak detection equipment in their service vehicles in order to locate and fix your leaking pipe all in one, single visit.

“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 to acid that’s present in the sand. This reaction makes the copper pipes brittle, causing them to split and eventually in need of pipe leak 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 Pipe Leaks

Water leaks tend to be some of the most intricate plumbing issues in the home environment. There are, however, some basic checks you can do to locate some of the more common leaks.

Toilet:  Check 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 inspect this.

Outdoor taps: A leaking garden tap can be given away by the presence of unusually green grass or foliage around it, especially if there hasn’t been much rain. Also, make sure to check hoses and drip irrigation systems.


If you continue to be affected by a burst pipe, it’s a good idea to request a quote to replace your pipes, especially if they’re in poor condition. We can replace corroded copper pipes with plastic pipes or chemically lagged copper.

This is the second time we've used Richard and again, the service was excellent. He is quick, efficient, made great recommendations and tidied up. We now have a great in-tap water filter system that doesn't take up much space and a sleek modern looking tap. Thanks again for a great job Richard.

We called on Rich to locate a leaking pipe underneath a concrete house slab. Using his thermal and audio detection equipment, he was able to locate the leak in the middle of the house to within 50mm and then expose the corroded pipe and repair with a minimum of damage to the floor. We were impressed with Rich's methodical approach in locating the leak which definitely saved time and unnecessary repairs.

Top notch service and advice from Richard, who clearly takes great pride in his work. He serviced my toilet and replaced my hot water system. For each job, he made it clear what needed to be done and what my options were, and then set about getting things done without fuss. I can't recommend Plumbdog highly enough!
