Orlando Plumbing: PinHole Plumbing Leaks

Have you ever had plumbing leaks called a pinhole in your copper pipe in Orlando Florida? If so, you know how much damage a little hole in your plumbing system can cause. So what causes pinholes in copper piping? Well there are a few reasons and reason number one is low grade plumbing parts such as type M copper. It is much cheaper than other types of copper because it is the thinnest. Next is poor workmanship such as leaving flux on the pipe which is an acid. The flux on the pipe is one example of poor workmanship from the Orlando plumber that can cause a problem down the road. The last reason for pinholes is aggressive water as the water eats the protective coating in the copper pipe and starts the break down of the copper.

Copper pipe has a lifespan of 20-25 years but with aggressive water we have seen copper pipe fail in as little as a few years in the Orlando area. We at Drain Genie Plumbing suggest thinking about repiping your home because once you have a plumbing leak in your copper piping it is only a matter of time until you get another leak and leaks can add up. The cost can add up quickly because first you have the leak detection service fee then the fee of your Orlando plumber doing the plumbing repair and then if you get another leak it can just keep going on and on and become a money pit. That is why repiping is the best option with copper leaks.

If you need a repipe in Orlando FL call us a 407-490-1230.
