  1. Cleaning up some of the leftover debris from last week's plumbing repairs and chopped out a ~3 foot section of pipe around the leaking section just to see how bad looked.  I could barely see down the length of the pipe due to all the mineral/rust build up!  Surprised that a) there was any flow at all through the ~25 foot stretch that I wound up replacing and b) it hadn't started leaking before this.  Well, at least I shouldn't have to worry about this particular stretch for another couple decades.

      There were a couple of spots that were rusted and leaking in a drip, drip sort of way.  This section was the only one that was actually spraying water out a pinhole leak.

      This run has been there at least since I moved in in ‘76 and I’d actually been planning to replace it last year but I didn’t get to it before the virus hit.  After that I didn’t want contractors coming in unless it were serious.  This section is all outside along a cinderblock wall from the house to the pool area in back so a few drips here and there weren’t a problem in and of themselves.  The leak in this section was another matter however.

      That's a long time. Now you've got it on my mind to check my own plumbing before we sell the house.
