        I think you should change all your copper fittings with pex. Pex is not very costly and also easy to install.

          Thankyou Maria. I'll look into pex. sounds like if I see it anywhere it will have big teeth marks in it from mice and rats chewing on it.

          I have seen and have installed a bunch of plastic like flexable pipe but it must not be pex because nothing seems to chew through it. HHHMMMMMMMMM


          Seriously I havent seen mice chew through pex, grey poly or cpvc or pvc. It sure could happen and copper can leak just like at my house

            I have never seen a anything chew through pex.

            I think it's a urban legend.
