Burst or Leaking Pipes

If you suspect a burst or leaking water pipe, locate your water meter and turn off your water supply at the main. Then, without delay, phone Chivers Eltham Plumbing on 0417 49 59 69.

Left unattended burst or leaking pipes can cause a great deal of damage to your property and your belongings. Even minor water leaks can be quite destructive if not repaired promptly. A burst internal water pipe in your home may leak as much as 400 litres of water in just one hour, enough to fill two bath tubs.

Our rapid response team are available for any and all plumbing emergencies, 24/7. We are locally based and ready to respond on short notice. Our team are highly trained and carry the latest leak detection and repair technology. We will diagnose, locate and repair any water leak quickly and effectively - guaranteed.

Signs you may have a burst or leaking pipe:

  • Damp patches on plaster walls and ceilings, or on carpet
  • Sound of water dripping or running
  • A wet patch in your yard/garden
  • Hissing noises from behind walls
  • Increased water usage
  • Unusual odours or mould growth
  • A loss of water pressure

Our kitchen renovation job was done professionally,and neatly - he even cleaned up after the job himself - we all love that!

Continuous Hot Water System

W. L. Chivers Plumbing are always friendly, reliable and deliver good quality in their work. We would recommend them to anybody. We have been using these plumbers for our plumbing needs over the past 8 years since we first bought our home, and we have NEVER been disappointed.
Today, they installed our new Continuous Hot Water System, and once again, they have done a FANTASTIC job.

Approval from my dog

I've used WL Chivers for a couple of hot water repairs now. They were very responsive and organised on the phone, with prompt arrival and rapid diagnosis and repair of the problem. Friendly, got the tick of approval from my dog, good job done. Will happily use again for future plumbing needs.

Very fast response

Excellent work. Very fast emergency response. Efficient. Clear communication. Quote was accurate, reasonable and honored. Came out same night at 7pm to do quote, then ordered parts and came back to complete the job at 11am next day. Extremely happy. They left the house clean and tidy, taking rubbish with them. The work done was supply and install pan collar rubber to stop toilet leaking and changing a toilet seat. Highly recommend Jordan and Mitch.

Highly recommended

Chivers Plumbing came highly recommended to me by my Body Corporate Manager following significant damage to my house caused by another plumbing service. Mitchell diagnosed and fixed the job quickly at a good price, high standard and in a very pleasant & professional manner. Will use again.

Jordan and his team are absolutely incredible. I've dealt with some dodgy plumbers in my time and it's great to find a company I can trust. Absolutely superb. Highly recommend.

Complete sewer replacement

Very professional crew all the way from Jordan down to the apprentice they treat your place as if it was theirs. Really happy with my big job - a complete sewer replacement under house and full trench across the yard.

Go-to Plumbers

Sewage blockage: Mitchell today did a great job, gave honest appraisal & clear explanation of the problem which he fixed & we have a forward plan for future maintenance over future years which we greatly appreciate. I heard about Chivers years ago from a friend. I now know why they were so highly recommended. They'll now be my "go to" plumbers always, for all jobs.

Burst Pipe Repaired

Called them at 4pm on a Sunday with a burst rusted out pipe in my front garden. Kyle was at my house by 5pm, they couldn't fix the issue immediately (due to no fault of theirs), but was back by 10am this morning, fixed and water back on. I cannot fault the service, highly recommend this company.
