Frequently asked questions

We’re often asked these questions in relation to burst pipe repairs, problems and relines.

What are your burst pipe repairs and relines plumbing costs?

Costs vary depending on the job at hand and the complexity of the issue you are having. Pipes jobs will need to be quoted in person. It’s safer and more effective to hire the services of a plumbing professional to get your pipes fixed correctly.

My toilet is constantly backing up. What does this mean?

It is very possible tree roots have entered your pipes. When this happens, toilet paper gets caught on these roots, making the blockage worse over time. Get in touch with a plumbing technician as soon as possible to have your pipes fixed and relined.

There are a lot of sinkholes appearing in my backyard. Does this mean I have tree roots growing in my pipes?

This is a common sign of an extensive tree root invasion. The roots are damaging the pipes resulting in leaking water. This is saturating the soil around the pipes, causing the ground to sink in. Call your plumber as soon as possible in this situation.

All of a sudden there have been changes to the water pressure in home. Do I need to have my pipes fixed?

When the water pressure changes, it can definitely be a sign of a clogged or cracked pipe. It’s best to have a plumber come out and assess the pipe for you before the problem gets any worse.

I just received my water bill and it is incredibly high compared to the last one. Could this mean I have a cracked pipe?

A high water bill can be an indicator of a cracked pipe. When the pipes become blocked, cracks occur and large amounts of water can be leaking causing your bill to be higher than usual. Having this issue fixed now instead of leaving it is going to save you money in the long run!
