Uh-oh, has your flexi pipe busted?
An emergency burst Flexi pipe can easily occur if there is a water pressure surge at your house. And the results can be disastrous, as the entire water supply can be compromised.

Why Has Your Flexi Pipe Burst?
An emergency burst flexi pipe can occur if you have tried to install one on your own. If you do it incorrectly, the burst flexi hose may be stretched or twisted, creating a weak point from where water can flow out.
The rubber Flexi tube often expands under a lot of pressure. While the stainless steel braid around the flexi pipe is supposed to prevent the rubber from expanding, excessive water pressure may cause the rubber pipe to bulge out. This can lead to rupturing of the pipeline, thereby flooding the area around it. And if the nuts around the connectors aren’t tightened properly, even a small increase in the water pressure can cause leaks.
Alternatively, if the nuts are too tight, then the seal may rupture. Plus, burst flexible water hoses in closed cabinets under sinks have a higher risk of bursting because of constant exposure to moisture. If you store chemicals like chlorine in the same cabinet, they may remain in the air and convert into hydrochloric acid when exposed to moisture. This can corrode the stainless steel braiding on the flexi, leading to a burst pipe.
What We Do To Solve Your Issue
To fix your burst flexi, we will check the water pressure. Plus, an isolation valve will be installed so that you can turn off the water supply of the flexible hose when needed without turning off the main valve.
We guarantee that our plumbers in Sydney come equipped with all the essential tools, like a copper pipe cutter, stop water valve, torch kit, etc., to get the job done quickly and smoothly. And you won’t have to break the bank if you need our 24/7 emergency services.
