What You Should Know About Pinhole Leak in Copper Pipe
A pinhole leak may sound like a small problem – but it can lead to a huge bill. Copper piping, often thought of as one of the strongest systems, has one fatal flaw.
Reichelt will outline here what a pinhole leak is and why it’s caused – but if you suspect you have one, you’ll likely need to call in one of our experts to solve it.
Copper systems have one fatal flaw. The pinhole problem. And if you have these pipes in your home and they are just about legal drinking age, you may start to notice some decline.
The pinhole problem is caused by pitting corrosion, or the creation of small holes in your pipes. These holes, which are smaller than ¼ inch can cause some serious issues and lead to the whole system needing replacement.
But how do you know if this is your problem? The telltale signs of copper pinholes are: a skyrocketing water bill, less than ideal water pressure, visible leakage, mold growth or condensation on the walls near your piping, a lingering dripping noise, or a change of pipe color.
