What's the story with chloramines and pinhole leaks?
Chloramines are being blamed for the rampant and epidemic number of pinhole leaks that are happening in Southern California. Specifically in the South County area. These Orange County cities are the most affected: Aliso Viejo - Coto de Caza - Ladera Ranch - Laguna Hills - Laguna Niguel - Mission Viejo - Rancho Santa Margarita - San Clemente - San Juan Capistrano - Talega - Trabuco Canyon.
Other cities that may have trouble as water quality continues to change in Orange County: Anaheim, Brea, Buena Park, Costa Mesa, Cowan Heights, Cypress, Dana Point, Emerald Bay, Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Irvine, La Habra, La Palma, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Las Flores, Lemon Heights, Los Alamitos, Midway City, Modjeska Canyon, Newport Beach, North Tustin, Orange, Orange Park Acres, Placentia, Rancho Mission Viejo, Red Hill, Rossmoor, Santa Ana, Seal Beach, Silverado, Stanton, Tustin, Villa Park, Westminster, and Yorba Linda.
The additional amount of ammonia that is being added in the imported water is reacting with the copper in pipes to create pinhole leaks. These are not discovered immediately. They tend to seep and spray a little bit. Once their damage is exposed it is extremely costly and it's a big insurance problem.
So what's happening now is insurance companies are tending to pay the first and possibly the second claim but then we're actually seeing them actually cancel home owners after that. And the home owners then need to find much more expensive insurance to get coverage.
We are able to remove the chloramines and eliminate the factor that the chloramines are playing in the pinhole leaks by filtering that particular chemical out on a whole house basis. So that is probably the most cost effective and best approach to help protect yourself from the scourge of the pinhole leaks and the damage and problems that come along with them.
