Brief History Water Pipes in Buena Park & Beyond

Southern California homes in Buena Park, Long Beach, Cerritos, Lakewood, and other surrounding cities were built with either steel or soft copper water lines. These original installed materials are L O N G past their expected service life of 40 years.

For steel, the zinc coating wears away with water and mineral friction flowing through the line. This exposes the bare steel to water, creating rust in your drinking water.

Soft copper or type M copper, comes in large coils, is unrolled in the dirt, and rocks and, sometimes stepped on by construction workers building your home, and is most often encased in your concrete slab when it is poured.

Over the years, water and minerals flowing through the pipe wear it paper thin, as well as thermal expansion of the pipe. This is where water flows through your pipes, transferring heat and cold to the pipe, causing it to shrink and expand ever so slightly. Decades later, 300,000 times back and forth, expanding and shrinking as rocks or concrete lying next to the pipe acting like a saw blade wears a hole through the copper. – Slab Leak.
