Brisbane Burst Pipe and Water Leak Detection
The most common sources of water leaks are supply lines (the pipes which bring fresh water onto your property) and drainage pipes (the pipes which take waste water away from your property). If you are suffering from high water bills, or suspect a leak is present, your property may require leak detection.
The simplest way to determine if you have a water supply leak is to monitor your water meter while no fixtures are in use. If the meter continues to move, this generally indicates you have a water leak. Other key indicators may include;
- Water ingress into the property.
- Wet or damp areas in the garden.
- Stained or dank carpet.
- Mould growth.
- Breaks or cracks in concrete paths or supports.
- Water stains or flaking paint on walls and ceilings.
- Warped chipboard or expanding cupboards.
As a trusted emergency Brisbane plumber, we offer a prompt, affordable, emergency response to water leaks of all kinds across Brisbane. For more information, click here to view or leak detection page or call us directly on 3878 4444.

This process involves guiding the CCTV camera unit down the drain to provide vision from inside the pipe. Once the pipework is assessed, locating equipment can be used to determine the exact position and depth of the drain. This information is useful to determine the condition of the drain and assess whether repairs or replacement are required.
