A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing to repair a pinhole leak in the copper pipe in a tenant’s bathroom wall.
After inspecting, the ASAP technician found the pinhole leak on the main water line into the toilet and shower cold side. The tech also recommended to replace a 1′ section on each side to eliminate the weak pipe in the area. While working, an unknown person unknowingly closed the hose bib causing the line to fill up and pressurize with water. The tech had to re-open the hose bib to release the pressure. A second water shut off was needed to drain out the water and new copper pipe replaced. Management was made aware of the second shut off.
Two inches of the main shut off would not shut off properly and it was recommended for the shut off to be replaced. Once properly assembled, copper pipe and fittings were tested by restoring hot and cold water. There are no leaks at this time. Lastly, the work area was cleaned up.
