Frequently Asked Questions About Melbourne Leaking Pipes
Leaks are often caused due to high water pressure. While this is often regarded as a good thing, it essentially increases the pressure on the entire piping system and shortens the lifespan of pipes.
Extreme temperature changes can cause cracks in even the most durable of pipes. Copper piping, found in older homes, are prone to corrosion and rusting.
Tree roots are a very problematic area and can burrow into pipes. Finally, shifts in the foundation of your home can cause drains to misalign, leading to cracks.
Of course. A leaking pipe means that water is flowing inside your home. With time it will cause serious water damage and weaken structural elements. If you do think that you have leaking pipes somewhere but can’t spot it, call a plumber to be sure.

In Melbourne, the property owner is responsible for all of the internal piping. In other words, it is your responsibility to ensure that all of the drains are in good working order. And the best way to do this is to call a responsible plumber like Reed for maintenance and repairs. It will prevent them from leaking in the first place. If you are renting, however, you can call the landlord to resolve the issue.
You don’t want to wait until you notice obvious signs of a leak. At this stage, it is too late. Plumbers have sophisticated tools to enable them to detect leaks. Even if the leak is under concrete or behind a wall, the plumber can use ground microphones or listening discs for detection. Of course, they will also do the typical checks on fixtures, taps and drains, to see if anything is awry.
It depends on the type of leak. If the leak is coming from a joint, then we can simply tighten up the joint to stop the leak.
However, if the leak is coming from the pipe itself, we will need to turn off the water supply and replace the pipe with a better one. If the leak is tiny, then we can apply epoxy putty, tape, or compound sticks.
However, it is still better to replace the drain even if the leak is tiny. Better safe than sorry. Bandaids are no match for structural integrity when it comes to durable water systems.
