I had a house built in 2002
May/June 2002, Copper pipe was placed into hard plastic tubing and laid in the ground protruding up through the concrete.
June 2002 the concrete was poured and the house continued to be constructed. The plumbing was all connected together and water pressure was applied and continued through construction.
The house was completed in Jan 2003.
June 2004, the first pinhole water leak appeared in the main 3/4 inch line. This line was replaced and routed up the wall into the attic and down to the connection, at my cost.
September 2004, the second pinhole water leak occurred inside the home, hot water side to the kitchen sink. This line was pulled and replaced at my cost.
January 2005, the third pinhole leak occurred from the same area as the second but on the cold water side to the ice maker on the fridge. This was pulled and replaced, I have not been charged yet.
March 4, 2005, the fourth pinhole leak in the main water line again, (the one that was replaced in June 2004) this one was cut and spliced.
What can be done about this, where can I go to get answers?
Who should be responsible?
It is not a matter of question of if it will happen again but when.
Thanks for your reply
