Leaking Pipes

Toowoomba Pipe Plumbers

Leaking pipes are not something you want to mess around with and should be fixed by a plumber.

Leaking pipes get worse over time, and that’s why you should call a professional to fix it as soon as possible. If the leak is due to a burst pipe, you should treat it as an emergency for health and safety reasons, and to prevent further damage to your property.

Our plumbers have the experience and skills to do the job right the first time. Where possible, our plumbers can localise the repair by replacing the section of damaged pipe. In instances where there is excessive corrosion or damage, we can replace the entire pipe.

Contact X Factor Plumbing & Earthmoving Pty Ltd today for professional repairs and other services. We are also available 24/7 for emergency repairs.

Signs of Leaking Pipes

Sometimes leaking pipes go undetected for some time before there are obvious indicators. Here are some signs that you may have a leaking pipe:

Streams or puddles of water in the yard or floor

Drips on walls or ceilings

Water staining

Reduced water pressure

Unexpectedly high water bills.

One of the best ways to prevent leaks is to understand what can cause them to happen in the first place, such as:


Broken seals

The seal around water connectors can break or wear out over time.


Older plumbing systems may have pipes with a high risk of rust that can result in the corrosion of your pipes.


Obstructions can build up in pipes that can result in burst pipes or overflowing.

Damaged pipe joints

Joints can deteriorate over time that can result in leaks.

High water pressure

Excessive water pressure can strain the pipes and cause leaks.

Tree roots

Tree roots can make their way into water pipes and damage them
