What is the average life expectancy of copper pipe?

Jul 27, 2018 · Copper was the standard choice for water pipe in North Florida from the early 1970s to about 2000, when CPVC (a cream-color plastic) pipe became more popular, largely due to its resistance to pin-hole leaks caused by pitting, the less-expensive material cost, and somewhat easier installation.

PVC-lined copper leach pads in Chile

Copper heap leaching has been common since the 1970s, but it became a major component of commercial production in the early 1980s. Chile is the leading producer of copper followed by the U.S., and while conventional milling remains the primary source of production, heap leaching continues to increase in its share of production (Smith, 1992).
