Does copper pipe wear out?

Hi All,

Does copper pipe wear out? I've got the house pretty torn up and I'm wondering if I should replace the pipes while I can see them?

Yes they can, replace with pex pipe.
Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.

I think copper piping might last 50+ years. Before you make any changes, you might want to run a pressure test to find out.
