Knowledge is power, so be aware of the most common cause for copper pipes leaking – corrosion, due to these pipes being embedded in cement. Depending on the quality of the copper pipe, this corrosion can happen over a period of two to 10 years, resulting in numerous tiny holes along the pipe embedded in the wall. Other materials are also used for piping and each has a different life expectancy and characteristics. We recommend that only qualified plumbers work on these pipes to ensure water-tight seals and quality repairs to resulting damage to walls and tiles. Check your insurance policy to ensure that a burst pipe is included in your cover.
