I have a leak to fix at my Dads house today, it happened a day or two after he left for vacation.

I already cleared out the closet it came through and pulled the ceiling down. Now I have to repair the copper pipe, seems to have rotted through as it is a pin hole leak in the middle of a 3/4" pipe. I thought it was from the bathroom remodel I did for him as it is right below that bathroom.

Either way it sucks just glad it was not my work that failed.

Good luck on your fix.


Curious as to how long a copper pipe is supposed to last, its about 35 years old.

By then the kid will be 15 and won't want nothing to do with me so I'll have time to fix it

If you can replace a 90 degree PVC bend through a 5" opening you'd be my hero
Anytime lol. I would probably cut out the drywall, put in a new piece, mud it, and never sand or paint lol.

I've seen copper leak along the bottom. It doesn't happen often. Water quality and friction are the two culprits.
