RE: Corrosion Engineer

The copper pipe looks like tubing used for water service -our water pipes
are not leaking and they are copper. The pipe was made in the USA - It is
printed with READING 1 M Made in USA - so it is 1" dia pipe and the M is
the thin wall product. But, it has pin hole leaks along a 3-4 ft section on
the 6 ft piece they cut and replaced. could the pipe be defective?

It is more likely caused because the contractor used thin wall copper =
pipe because it was less expensive. My mother=E2=80=99s house in =
Oceanside built around 1982 has had 3 leaks in the last 3 years.=20
