Plumber Dromana: Fig street burst pipe

It was a dark and stormy night and a lovely couple had driven over their tap at an old house in Dromana to see an explosion of water rocketing into the sky.  Orbit Plumbing was called to their rescue. “Daniel” our Plumber Somerville located informed the clients to turn their water meter off and we where on the way.

On arrival our Rosebud Plumber found that there was an old gal pipe running from the water meter and into the home so the pipe was already very frail and easy to break.

The Galvanized piping was used in the old days for water and gas installations although after some time they realized that the piping was corroding from the inside out and would virtually end up closing over with rust on the inside of the pipe. Luckily plumbers have stopped using this piping now and have moved to using plastic piping.

Our plumber realized the plumbing products underneath the ground was a gal tee piece with a female thread on it and it is an extremely delicate procedure to remove the old gal water pipe threaded into this tee without doing more damage to the actual tee piece because if the tee is damaged it is a much bigger job to repair than if not.

We managed to unscrew the broken gal pipe out from the tee piece without causing any damage and we replaced the up stand with a copper pipe and new garden tap.
