Pinhole leaks are usually just an indicator that the entire joint is bad. Usually you cannot "resolder" them because the surfaces inside have been contaminated by contact with the water and you have to take them apart and reclean the joint and start over.

: Hi, Does anyone know a way to repair pin hole leaks on cooper pipe joints? I have just finished replumbing my bathroom in cooper and have 3 very small leaks. I am looking for an easier way to fix them as my resoldering just makes them worse. They are in vertical joints in a very comfined crawl space. Thanks for your help!! Larry
