When a pipe springs a leak, the situation can get out of control fast. You don’t want spraying water to wreak havoc and lead to huge repair bills. Here are quick fixes to control the damage and keep your water running while you’re arranging for a proper repair.
Soak water-activated fiberglass-resin tape (sold in a repair kit for just this purpose) in water, wrap it around the leak and smooth it with gloved hands. Allow it to cure as directed before restoring the water.
