Repiping your house
Is it time to repipe your home?
When water leaks occur in your home, they need to be fixed. If the leaks are extensive, you should consider having repiping done. You may not need to have the whole house repiped, but the plumbers may find patches of corrosion along your copper pipes.
How much can a water leak cost?
A pinhole leak in indoor pipe: $70 per month. Toilet leak: $80 per month. Garden hose stuck open: $300 per month. Toilet running with Flapper stuck: $600 per month.
In Florida, copper pipes will start to corrode due to the hard water, and you may be getting more pinhole leaks. If a pinhole water leak is inside a wall it may go on unnoticed and mold starting to grow. This kind of ongoing leak can cause extensive water damage and mold which you need to remediate. This can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
