Pitting is one form of corrosion and probably the most common. It occurs inside your copper pipes and is likely to result in a pinhole leak. Pitting corrosion is an attack on the walls of your copper pipes and isolated to one specific area and is associated with hard water.
High Water Pressure
High water pressure may sound like a luxury; it may even feel good, but without a doubt, it will put a strain on your pipes. Your pipes, joints, and appliances, including your water heater, are designed to withstand 80 psi, but the recommended psi is around 60; anything over 80 will put a strain on your plumbing system.

Additionally, old wall heaters have also been the culprit of gas leaks. Newer model appliances will have an automatic shut-off for your safety.
