What affects your pipe leak repair cost?

Your cost will depend on these factors:

  1. Location of the leak. You’ll pay more to repair a leak in your mainline than you will for one in a secondary drain line (drain that connects directly to a plumbing fixture).
  2. Material of the pipe (if it needs to be replaced). Materials like copper, concrete, iron, steel, clay will cost more to replace than materials like PVC or ABS.
  3. Cleanup and cosmetic repairs. If your plumber needs to cut into drywall or concrete to repair the leak, you may need to pay for cosmetic repairs afterwards, which will add to your overall cost.
  4. Local permit fees. These fees, which vary depending on the scope of the project, will add to your overall repair cost.
  5. The plumber you hire. Expect to pay more for higher quality plumbers. They’ll likely charge higher prices for their skill and experience. Remember though, an experienced plumber can actually save you money in the long run (they'll fix your leak right the first time).

How to prevent pinhole leaks in copper pipes

Unique to copper piping, pinhole leaks are tiny holes caused by corrosion inside the pipe.

Unfortunately, if you've already noticed extensive pinhole leaks in your piping, there's no way to reverse the damage. You'll most likely need a plumber to repipe your home.

If your pipes are less than 20 years old and you haven't noticed any leaks, you can help prevent pinhole leaks by doing 2 things:

  1. Reduce turbulence in your pipes. Copper pipes start to leak when they suffer a lot of turbulence (when water travels through the pipe at an unstable speed). The water (and the minerals in it) wear down the inside of the piping, especially at joints and elbows, where the water is forced to quickly change directions.

    A plumber can reduce pipe turbulence 3 ways:
    • Lower the water velocity. Copper pipes should have a velocity of 2.4 m/s (meters per second) for cold water and 1.5 m/s for hot water.
    • Make sure you have the correct pipe size. Pipes that are too small increase the friction of water on the lining. Frequent clogs and banging noises could be signs that your pipes are too small.
    • Check the distance between your pipe fittings. Appropriate space between fittings reduces turbulence, which helps reduce pinhole leaks.
  2. Install a water softener. Over time, the minerals in hard water can cause pitted corrosion in copper pipes, creating pinhole leaks. Installing a whole-home water softener removes these minerals from your plumbing, so they won't build up in or negatively react with the copper piping.
