Lowflo utilises experienced engineers to undertake repairs of all the leaks and water main defects that they locate on clients’ underground water mains. Leak repairs are always difficult, and continuity of business for their clients is paramount. Taking business, traffic and public safety into consideration, they conduct leak repairs swiftly, minimising impact on their clients’ businesses. Lowflo’s repair crews are professional, efficient, thorough and tidy.

All surrounding areas of the excavation sites are protected with safety barriers, and where depths become excessive, trench supports are used to ensure the safety of the team. Full reinstatement is completed once the repair is finalised and pressure tested.

  • Fire Hydrants
  • Sluice Valves
  • Stop-Cocks
  • Water Meters
  • Central Heating Systems
  • Hot/Cold Water Piping

All waste material from their excavations are removed from site and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner, recycling waste where possible.

Domestic Leak Repairs

With Lowflo’s extensive experience, their plumbers can lift flooring, excavate and completely repair the leak with minimum disruption.

Lead Pipe Replacement

Where lead pipe exists supplying your home, it is recommended that they are replaced to prevent any health issues with you or your family. 

Lead can be present in drinking water. Lead piping, lead solder and lead-lined water tanks were commonly used in plumbing up to and including the 1970s, so some people may still be getting water through these older plumbing systems. Lead is a danger to health, especially for young children, pregnant women and babies fed on formula, so water for drinking and cooking should contain as little lead as possible. The legal level of lead in drinking water is 10 micrograms per litre.

Financial assistance is available in the form of tax relief from the Department of Housing.
