Many older homes in Florida still have copper pipes. Copper pipes are found to last up to 50 years. But, Florida water and copper pipes do not mix well. The hard water in Florida causes pinholes to appear in the pipes. These holes in the copper piping start out very small, you probably won’t even notice them. It may even look like your pipes are just sweating. Over time, these pinholes will keep growing. If you think your home might be suffering from copper pipe leaks, you need to find a water restoration company near you immediately. If this problem isn’t caught soon enough, the pipes can burst, and your entire house will flood.
