In response to Re: pin hole leaks in iron pipe
Usually by the time you have one pin hole, you have already had a dozen that leaked and sealed themselves before they caused any damage. There is no way to "reline" the pipes because the rust on the inside has almost completely closed it up. Pex is an inexpensive way to repipe, but not the one I would choose, since it requires the same amount of access to install copper.

: I have a home with half iron pipe and half copper (due to a remodel before I got it). the iron pipe is in an attic area and has a pin hole leak (I patched it). I've heard that you can re-line pipe. what's involved in that process and is it cheaper than tearing out the old galv pipe and installing new copper? the water is usually very rusty when I first open a valve in the morning. Any information would be greatly appriciated. thank you.
