Plumber Frankston: New Street Burst Pipe

An Emergency Plumber Frankston was called out to a Factory that had a burst pipe. They had no idea where the water was coming from except for the fact that they received a $2,500.00 bill from South East Water.

When our Mornington Peninsula Plumber arrived at the job he looked around the building and discovered that there was a flow of water coming from behind the existing Over flow relief gully and the water was making its way into a break in the earthenware overflow relief gully. After removing the ORG out of the way we discovered that there was a Galvanized pipe underneath all of the concrete that had burst clean apart. This presented as quite a challenge as we then had 2 fixed points of gal pipe to contend with and also had to somehow put a tee piece in as well. Our Somerville Plumber deals with these kind of issue’s all of the time.

Reece has some new fittings that easily hook onto an existing Gal pipe and convert down to a fitting thread or something that is used more commonly these days. After getting some Plumbing Products from a Mornington Plumbing store we returned to connect up the new fittings. We did struggle slightly with this as there was quite a lot of corrosion surrounding the old gal pipe’s which meant we had to clean them up really well.

We installed a new outside tap and swapped the old gal up stand to copper and finished the job. South East water are usually pretty understanding with burst pipes under ground so we will always take a meter reading and supply our customer with a leak application form so they can apply for a reduction on their bill.
