Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Plumbing Category: Leaks

Problem:

Pipe is leaking, is in need of an emergency temporary fix.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Hose clamp

  • Rubber sheet

  • Screwdriver

Solution:

First and foremost, nothing can substitute the permanent leak fix of replacing a pipe that is leaking.  Having said that, in the need to repair a leak right away for a temporary amount of time, you may opt to take the following steps:

  1. First, cut to size a piece of rubber that will cover the circumference of the pipe that is leaking.

  1. Having cut the rubber piece to size, place it around the leaking portion of the pipe and, once it is neatly rolled around, secure this placement of the rubber piece with the incorporation of a hose clamp:  Place the hose clamp over the rubber piece in an effort to secure it to the pipe, itself, using a screwdriver to tighten the screws of the hose clamp as may be necessary.

That's what it takes to temporarily stop a leaking pipe as an emergency measure.
