Canberra’s cold climate is known to be a problem for old copper pipes. A burst pipe can happen at any time, however due to Canberra’s beautiful colder months your water supply pipe work is more prone to freezing, then bursting having devastating results.
As well as pipes freezing, the most common burst pipe is on your hot water supply.
A burst pipe is not always evident straight away. If the burst happens to be under the ground or underneath a concrete slab, sometimes it can take weeks before you even notice that you have a burst pipe. This can become quite costly in excessive water bills.
Some signs of a burst pipe are damp areas that never seem to dry out, excessive water bills, hissing noise, or the sound of running water.
