Pinhole leaks can wreak havoc with your flooring, your home foundation, and its structural integrity. But how do these form, and what’s the best solution if you find yourself with one?
Pinhole Leak Formation
Copper pipes are notorious for developing pinhole leaks over time. Aside from that, pinhole leaks largely originate from an improperly fitted back fill or a shabby piping installation. Most homes have their distribution piping network installed underneath the slabs of their property. The cold and hot pipes are done without any fitting, which means they are looped on to the different parts of the home. Over time, pinholes can develop and make unusual whistling or humming sounds as the pipe is being used. A major pipe failure is also one reason for pinhole leaks. Corrosion, ground settling and poor workmanship are other likely causes. Pinhole leaks can seem insignificant, but they do a lot of damage to your pipes and property if left unchecked.
