copper pipe leaks
Posted by Mike McDonald on November 07, 1999 at 20:12:58:
We moved into a new house 1 1/2 years ago. House is on a well system. Had the water checked by Culligan, no issues. Water piping is all copper. 6 weeks ago a leak developed in a run of pipe, then stopped after 2 weeks. Last week another leak developed in the same pipe. Plumbing co. that installed the original piping replaced a section of pipe, said it was all pitted on the inside, took a water sample and said possibly ph level too low or an electrical grounding problem. Tonight I found another leak 20' from the original one, same type in a straight line of pipe. Have you ever heard of this happening in a new house? Would sure appreciate some help, I'm not sleeping. Thanks, Mike.
