Pipe Leak Repair

There are several types of pipe leak repair materials. You can use fiberglass tape, which is flexible and easy to use. Be sure to wash the area where the pipe is located before you begin applying the tape. It hardens with proper exposure to moisture. Follow the directions on the package before applying the tape. Wrap the piece around the leaking pipe and test it for leaks. Once applied properly, it will last up to a year. To prevent a repeat leak, you must use fiberglass tape carefully.
