If a Pipe or Flexi-hose Has Burst on Your Property, Follow These Steps Immediately

Step 1: Switch off your water supply to the leaking pipe or fitting if one is available. If you can’t find it, switch off your mains water supply.

Step 2: If your leakage is in proximity to electrical appliances, it could become more hazardous, so isolate your mains power supply to any power appliances at risk of water ingress.

Step 3: While you are doing the above, have a second person call us. We’ll send a quality burst pipe plumber with the right equipment needed to deal with the situation promptly. We are on call for Brisbane burst pipe plumbing emergencies 24/7, so you can count on us to be there when you need us!



When you need a burst pipe plumber, Brisbane professionals Salmon Plumbing provide fast assistance. Our skilled team are highly experienced in resolving emergency plumbing issues such as burst pipes, and will expertly identify the source of the leak, replace the damaged pipes, and fix the problem in a timely manner, so that you can prevent further damage to your property.

How Salmon Plumbing Can Help with Your Burst Pipe Emergencies

24/7 Plumbing Emergency Response, 365 Days a Year
Burst pipes are dealt with as an emergency by Salmon Plumbing. We provide immediate assistance by phone and a qualified plumber will be straight out to identify and stop the leak, preventing further damage to your property.
Quality Repairs
Our licenced plumbers will make initial repairs, replacing the section of burst pipe using quality materials. Our team can provide expert advice in relation to the underlying cause of your burst pipe and make recommendations beyond the initial repair.
Burst Pipe Prevention
We can help you avoid a burst pipe emergency with preventative measures. Ongoing care and maintenance are often overlooked but can potentially save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Flexi-hose connections are a common point of failure – they will perish and fail over time and are a major cause of water leaks. Visually inspect any flexi-hoses that you may have connected to taps, toilets and washing machines on a regular basis. If yours are over five years old or looking worse for wear, give us a call.
Burst Pipe Urgency Mitigation
We can help you remove the urgency from burst pipe issues in the future. Ask us about installing individual isolator valves for your fixtures. If one tap fails or a service pipe bursts, these valves work by isolating the water to that one fixture instead of shutting off the water supply to your entire property. This can remove the urgency to call in a burst pipe emergency plumber, allowing you to prevent further damage to your property and giving you the option to schedule a more convenient time to have your repairs carried out.

Salmon Plumbers Brisbane

  • Great work, professional, responsive

    Peter D

    Once again we needed Salmon Plumbing for a upgrade to an existing toilet, They were quick, polite, efficient and helpful with advice.

    Thank you again Salmon Plumbing

    John R

  • Salmon are literal legends and my first choice whenever possible. They’re efficient and thorough, friendly, and affordable.

    I’ve had horrific experiences with a well known company who shall not be named because Salmon were fully booked – and I regret not just waiting longer.

    I’ll always choose these guys first for literally anything and everything in future.

  • Salmon plumbing were able to respond to our request on the same day even though our issue was not an emergency.

    The tradesman turned up on time and fixed our shower pressure issue quickly, as well as installing a new sink waste which we requested while on site. Additionally they fixed an overflow for the sink that had not been installed at all by the builder during renovations. Everything was cleaned up and left tidy.

    Thank you Salmon Plumbing!


    Exemplary experience with a fantastic business. From the owner John, who took my initial enquiry, he was so empathetic after our home was flooded in the February downpour to Gerald who was brilliant in assisting with a temporary system. Virginnia was always wonderful to deal with and kept me up to date and Dan did a fantastic job with the final install and now have a great new system and more importantly a happy wife with hot hot water. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Jeff D

  • Not only did Chris do an excellent job but, thanks to his initiative, it was completed five days earlier than I’d expected.

    Sue M

    Salmon (and Chris from Salmon), were fast, fairly priced, very open, communicative and friendly; diagnosed a systemic problem and have fixed for a fair price.

    To all the staff and contractors

    We thank you very much for all the work everyone has put in to making our new kitchen come to life.

    We started our journey in mid, October 2020 with a tour of your showroom and with preliminary discussions about what we were looking for in a kitchen.

    Roll on early 2021 and with final sign off of the kitchen plan, demolition and removal of our old kitchen and internal structural redesign, we waited for the new kitchen manufacture and installation.

  • Hi John,

    Just got to say Sebastian has been great today – and everything is spotless!

    I really appreciate good service and I’ve received it every time I have used your company. Thankyou!


    Lyn C

    Dear Claire,

    Thank you for your email and the information contained therein.

    We would like to say how very pleased we were with the professionalism of the young men who attended to this job and ask that it please be passed to your/their Managers.

    Eric is polite yet friendly and took the time to explain what he was doing something we really did appreciate.  Oliver, we understand was still on a learning curve but also very polite and professional.

    Both young men are a credit to your business and should be commended for their professionalism and positive pleasant attitude.  We need more trades personnel and people, especially young people like these two.  Eric should be made an example of how other young men should conduct their trade.  Really top notch.

    We wish you all to continue to be safe.

    Kind regards and thank you again.

    Margaret & Paul Woollard.

  • Thank you,

    Your two plumbers who visited were professional courteous, and good ambassadors.



    David M

    Hey John, just wanted to drop you a line and say Eric did a great job on the house. He was on time, kept me informed and asked all the right questions.

    Things are so strange right now and being without a job I honestly didn’t know what I was going to do. I really appreciate everything you’ve been able to do to make this happen for me.



  • I’d like to say a big thank you to one of your plumbers, Eric. He arrived on time, was a very pleasant young man, friendly and very polite, explained what he was doing, was very efficient.

    Eric is a great asset to your business and I would recommend your company to others who require good service.


    Pat H

    Dear Virginnia,

    Firstly, I would like to thank you for the invoices and secondly, I would like to commend on how pleasant it is to hear your friendly voice over the phone. It certainly makes it easier to ask or clarify questions.

    I would also like to thank Salmon Plumbing especially Sheldon and Mark for their professional service in helping with the blocked ensuite toilet and installation of the hot water system.

    Mark and Sheldon were very patient in answering any queries that I had.

    It was a pleasure to work with you. Thank you very much.

    Warm regards
