Home built in 1983-slab foundation-plumbed with copper tubing.
Problem: The copper tubing in the walls develops pin hole leaks, we are told caused by stray voltage or electrolysis in the water. Inside of inspected copper tubing indicates a small narrow groove cut in copper and moves to a point where a pin hole leak develops.
We are doing a complete re model and need to know what the best product is for a complete re plumbing to releive this problem. Should we use copper (and ground it), CPVC or what? We want a permanent fix this time!
