Problems

Challenges with Flexible Copper Tubing Home Repiping

While flexible copper tubing is less susceptible to corrosion than rigid pipes, it still encounters performance and longevity issues.

Corrosion Over Time

Even flexible copper can develop pinhole leaks due to corrosion, which can lead to significant water damage and costly repairs.

Material Cost

Copper is generally more expensive than alternative materials like PEX, both in terms of initial material costs and installation.

Thermal Expansion

Temperature-induced expansion and contraction in copper tubing can cause structural fatigue and eventual failure.

Water Quality Issues

In some cases, the copper can leach into the water, posing potential health risks over long-term exposure.

Installation Challenges

While more flexible than rigid pipes, copper tubing still requires more labor-intensive installation than more modern materials.

Environmental Impact

The mining, refining, and processing of copper have a greater environmental impact than sustainable alternatives like PEX.
