Burst or Leaking Pipes

If you're worried that you may have a burst or leaking water pipe:

Step 1/ Locate your water meter and turn off supply at the mains.

Step 2/ Call Watsonia Plumbing on 0417 49 59 69.

It's no understatement to say that burst or leaking water pipes can cause a great deal of damage to your property and your belongings.

Even minor water leaks can be quite destructive if not repaired promptly. A burst internal water pipe can leak as much as 400 litres of water per hour; that's roughly the equivalent of two full bath tubs emptied into your house!

Our team are highly trained and carry the latest leak detection and repair technology. We will diagnose, locate and repair any water leak quickly and effectively - guaranteed.

Signs you may have a burst or leaking pipe:

  • Sounds of water dripping or running
  • Damp patches on carpet, walls or ceilings
  • A wet patch in your yard/garden
  • Hissing noises from behind walls

Customer Reviews
Storm water issue

Jordan was on time and explained each step of the process of unblocking our storm water issue. Using a camera and high pressure hose he was able to flush out the leaves and grim. Great job, great value.

Continuous Hot Water System

W. L. Chivers Plumbing are always friendly, reliable and deliver good quality in their work. We would recommend them to anybody. We have been using these plumbers for our plumbing needs over the past 8 years since we first bought our home, and we have NEVER been disappointed.
Today, they installed our new Continuous Hot Water System, and once again, they have done a FANTASTIC job.

Very fast response

Excellent work. Very fast emergency response. Efficient. Clear communication. Quote was accurate, reasonable and honored. Came out same night at 7pm to do quote, then ordered parts and came back to complete the job at 11am next day. Extremely happy. They left the house clean and tidy, taking rubbish with them. The work done was supply and install pan collar rubber to stop toilet leaking and changing a toilet seat. Highly recommend Jordan and Mitch.

Concise, pleasant, professional

Every single step, every communication, every moment was clear, concise, pleasant and professional.

The whole team was amazing but Jordan and Daniel were absolute standouts - nothing was too much bother, they made it easy to understand what was happening to our sewage, easy to understand our options and got the whole job done so fast. Thank you, guys!

Burst Pipe Repaired

I called Chivers Plumbing and Mitch was able to arrive at the property same day and within the agreed time frame. Mitch was friendly and up front with the costs of the job, and he was able to quickly identify the issue. There was a burst pipe in the front yard. He promptly completed the job within 20-30 mins and everything was resolved

Complete sewer replacement

Very professional crew all the way from Jordan down to the apprentice they treat your place as if it was theirs. Really happy with my big job - a complete sewer replacement under house and full trench across the yard.
