RE: Corrosion Engineer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The copper pipe looks like tubing used for water service -our water pipes are not leaking and they are copper. The pipe was made in the USA - It is printed with READING 1 M Made in USA - so it is 1" dia pipe and the M is the thin wall product. But, it has pin hole leaks along a 3-4 ft section on the 6 ft piece they cut and replaced. could the pipe be defective?

It is more likely caused because the contractor used thin wall copper =
pipe because it was less expensive.  My mother=E2=80=99s house in =
Oceanside built around 1982 has had 3 leaks in the last 3 years.=20
