What to do if there is a Leak or a Burst Pipe


Turn off the water at the meter - Locate your water meter (read our handy guide here) and turn it off.


Turn on your garden tap – this will allow the water still in the system to run out there, rather than putting more pressure on the burst or leaking pipe.


Call Expert Plumbing & Gas Services – We will get a plumber out to you quickly to address the leak and provide solutions. If the leak is underground or in a wall, we have specialised equipment to locate, repair and replace the pipe.

"When we had a plumbing emergency at our house in Yarraville early one morning, we called Expert Plumbing based on their good reviews. Well we weren't disappointed, they had Ash come out directly from another job, he had our major leak fixed in what seemed like no time at all. He was very professional but also friendly enough to have an in depth conversation about plumbing with our 2 year old. Expert were also very fair when it came to the final invoice, I can only recommend Ash and Expert Plumbing, thanks guys!!"

"We had a burst pipe on our property. After a call to Expert Plumbing Leigh arranged for a plumber to arrive within an hour. Luca and Brandon worked with patience and good humour for over three hours in freezing rain and mud to locate the leak under a brick path and fix it. They then worked into the evening dark to clean up the site (a mess!) as best they could. Thanks to Leigh, Luca and Brandon. We will certainly use Expert Plumbing again."
