LAGUNA NIGUEL - Many Southern California homeowners have experienced the plague of pinhole leaks in their copper piping systems. Traditional methods of leak repair are destructive, can cost home owners thousands of dollars, and do not provide any permanent relief.
Recently, several high profile home builders in California have taken legal action in an effort to resolve the costs associated with the problem of early pipe failure. The focus of the case was changes in water treatment methods, water chemistry and the water companies’ involvement. The Orange County Register recently reported that some of the changes made by water companies to improve the quality of the drinking water may be contributing the epidemic of pinhole leaks in copper pipes.
