Dezincification of Fittings
The plumbing problem exists in Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City because of the problematic mineral content of the local water supply combining with the high level of zinc in the brass pipe fitting. There is a chemical reaction that causes a process called dezincification which leads to accelerated corrosion in the brass fittings when exposed to oxygen and water. The zinc leaches out of the fitting and begins blocking the flow of water. That leads to leaks, blocked pipes, restricted water flow
