What To Do When You Have a Burst Water Pipe

Step One: Indentify Burst Pipe

First you need to work out if you’ve got a burst pipe. In some circumstances this will be obvious. In other scenarios, perhaps an recurring wet spot in the yard, this isn’t so obvious. Here’s what to do.

  1. turn off all taps and makes sure dishwashers and washing machines are off
  2. checked your water meter
  3. if your water meter is still ticking over, you have a burst pipe


Sometimes the leak can be slow enough that you have to record the meter reading and then compare this to another reading an hour later. If the two are different, you have a leak.

Step Two: Turn Off Your Water At The Meter

Leaking water can cause damage, particularly if it’s inside the house. Turn the water off at the meter.

Step Three: Call A Plumber

That’s us. Call us and we’ll get that problem solved for you quickly. We’ll also check if there were underlying reasons for the leak. You might have a rusty pipe that is ready to burst at another point. We’ll identify and fix the whole issue rather than just the immediate problem. This saves you time and money in the long term.
