A pinhole is the occurrence of a leak in a metallic (usually copper) pipe. These leaks are approximately the size of a pinhole.Pinhole leaks form as a result of pitting corrosion on the pipe's internal surface, resulting in pressure being exerted by the flowing water, which over time erodes the copper material.
