The pipe that has the pin holes in it is half inch or three quarter bendable copper pipe, so it is not as thick as straight pipe. I can reach the spot that has the pin hole in it, so in theory I suppose I could just replace what I can reach for a temporary fix. But I'd rather replace both lines from the Tub faucet with Pex to the shut off valves in the access panel.

Given that I'd like to replace both bendable copper lines I was wondering how that Jacuzzi bath tub was installed in the first place. Its all surrounded by tile like a sink in a vanity.

Rats I think I remember that they put that in while they were framing the house. To detach the drain I would have to make a hole in the ceiling in my office underneath it.

You would have to be a snake to get to the area where the faucet connects to the water line. I am wonder if a plumber has a trick to work this out with little tile damage, or will I be faced with complete mess to fix this?

Sounds like a uptown project. PEX is a real PITA to work with. I still do not like the champ system but I have to admit they are used in lots of applications.

Me I like PVC it is very forgiving easy to use easy to fix and flexiable enough to bend around stuff and very forgiving to mistakes.

I admire professional copper installations. But I LOVE the cost and ease of my aborations of PVC plumbing. ....
