I have had two (2) copper water piping leaks in my basement that are very expensive to repair with a plumbing company. On one occasion the plumber sealed it (pin hole) and used a new shut-off near the site. The second time he sealed the pin hole at the site.
Being on a fixed-income and disabled, it gets difficult to afford these recurring types of expenses. The plumber suggested using an alternative pipe and replacing the entire copper system?
This is beautiful 1940 Cape and I want to try to maintain it. I also wonder when such leakage takes place, is Asbestos like floor tiles or overhead piping an indoor health issue?
