Copper Pipe Leak

What is a Copper Pipe Leak?

Copper is a very common material in residential plumbing systems, and copper pipes can leak for many reasons.

Your copper pipe might be leaking if you have brownish-red stains on your wall or flooring near an appliance with a pilot light, such as a stovetop or oven.

What Causes a Copper Pipe Leak?

When a copper pipe is corroded it will become weak and more susceptible to breaking and then leaking.

Each of the following corrodes and wears out a copper pipe:

Chemical exposure

Copper corrodes from exposure to acidic chemicals such as the ones commonly found in toilet bowl cleaners. Liquids used to remove clogs, like Drain-O, also corrode copper pipes.

Atmospheric exposure

Copper is easily oxidized by the air around it over time. The corrosion of copper occurs when it comes into contact with oxygen or water.

Joints wear out

Joints wear out because of normal usage over time. Fittings also leak when they no longer seal the pipe from the rest of your home or from the elements.

Freezing temperatures

Copper pipe will expand and contract because of temperature changes. In the extreme cold of winter, pipes will expand as water freezes. Expansion of pipes can cause them to burst and/or leak.
