Frequently Asked Questions

Firstly, check your water meter to determine whether the leak is fast or slow. Start by turning off all fixtures, including the dishwasher and washing machine. Then take note of the meter—if it continues moving, you have a fast leak. If you come back and check in 2 hours and the number has changed, the leak is slow. From there, you have a couple of options. One is to put some food colour into your toilet tank to see if it leaks into the bowl. Slow leaks in toilets are some of the most common ways water is wasted in Darwin households.

This depends entirely on the size of the job, the kind of pipes you are using and the severity of the damage. However, on average, pipe relining can range from as low as $75 to $250 per foot, all the way to $500 and more. The first thing that needs to be done is determining the extent of the job and for that you will need a fully licensed plumbing team.

In Australia, the average price range for fixing a burst pipe is $280 to $1,200. This is quite a large range due to differing levels of severity associated with burst pipe issues.
