I live in the Texas hill country in a nine year old home. We have owned the home for 5 of the 9 years. During those 5 years we have experienced 4 water pipe leaks. They have been pin holes in the copper pipe. The last two have been in slab leaks. I am on a well system and have a water softner attached to the house water.
What is causing these pin holes in the copper? I just had the plumber that fixed this latest slab leak tell me I would be better off (money wise) in the long run having the whole house switched over to the new PECK(sp) system and get away from the copper with all the problems I am having.
Any thoughts on what could be causing this problem or what I could do to alleviate the pin holes?
