Fixing a Pinhole Copper Pipe Leak

We were called out to Diamond Bar for what the customer presumed was a leak under her water heater caused by a slab leak.
After investigation, we cut a hole in the drywall under the staircase to expose the pipes seen here. In the cold line manifold, there was a pinhole leak that was constantly shooting out water! It wasn’t a slab leak after all.
We cut out the bad section of pipe and repaired the line to fix the leak.
We were able to save the home from a good deal of damage and the customer a lot of money as well.


Before: the image on the left with the red arrow shows the constant pinhole leak from the pipe.

After: the image on the right where the green arrow is pointing to shows the area that we sautered the hole to fix the leak.
